A 31-year-old Kennewick man escaped serious injuries Monday after being hit while driving across Highway 12 at A Street in Pasco, the Washington State Patrol said.
Troopers said Ismael Cortes-Pinto failed to yield after stopping at the intersection.
Cortes-Pinto's 2006 Nissan Pathfinder was hit in the intersection by a 2000 Volkswagen Jetta that was going east on Highway 12.
The driver of the Jetta, Brittany Becktold, 23, of Burbank, was not hurt in the 2:45 p.m. crash.
Cortes-Pinto was taken to Lourdes Medical Center in Pasco, where he was treated and released.
Both drivers were wearing seat belts, troopers said.
