A Benton City man was injured in a two-car crash Wednesday afternoon at the Highway 240 Edison Street off ramp.
Jesus Martinez Garcia, 27, was driving a Toyota Corolla west on the highway at 4:07 p.m. and took the off ramp.
He ran into the back of a Lincoln Continental stopped for traffic on the off ramp, according to the Washington State Patrol. The Lincoln was driven by Dickie Burnett, 74, of Vancouver.
Neither driver was hurt, but a passenger in the Toyota was taken to Trios Health in Kennewick. The state patrol said speed was a factor in the crash and a charge of negligent driving is being considered.
