Troopers are looking for a white Nissan Versa with Oregon plates after the driver hit a firefighter and left the scene Sunday morning north of Granger, officials said. The westbound car lost control on Interstate 82 milepost 57 and struck a firefighter who was at the left rear of a fire truck parked at the scene of a collision, according to a news release from the Washington State Patrol. The car stopped briefly and then left. The firefighter, identified as Terry Carter of Granger, was injured and taken to Virginia Mason Memorial hospital, WSP said. In a social media post Sunday, Yakima County Fire District 5 said Carter was released from the hospital and was at home resting. "We preach and preach that when you see flashing lights and deteriorating road conditions that you slow down and move over, now this message hits home more than ever," the post said.
