A Sunnyside motorcyclist was hospitalized Sunday night when a car hit him from behind on Interstate 82 at Sunnyside, said the Washington State Patrol.
Juan M. Cuevasperez, 20, was headed east on the highway just before 11 p.m. when he slowed and was struck by a Dodge Neon driven by Erik Bravo, 21, of Sunnyside.
Both vehicles were traveling at a high rate of speed, said the WSP.
Cuevasperez was taken to Sunnyside Community Hospital.
Bravo was not hurt but he faces reckless driving charges, the WSP said.
