Trejo Munoz was transported to Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee. Campos Nunez, as well as the other passengers in both cars, were taken to hospitals, as well.

In Trejo Munoz’s car, Esmeralda G. Magana Barragan was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Adriana Flores Figuerona, Maria G. Rodriguez Cosme and Karina Sanchez Ortiz were taken to Samaritan Healthcare in Moses Lake.

Campos Nunez and Brian Bernal Campos were both transported to Quincy Valley Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
