A 63-year-old Pasco man was taken to Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland on Saturday after the motorcycle he was riding was struck by a car on Interstate 182 in Pasco.
Glen Buxton's 1999 Suzuki motorcycle was totaled. He was wearing a helmet.
The motorcyclist was struck by the driver of a 1990 Nissan 3ZX coupe, Arturo Uriostegui, 25, of Pasco, who was merging onto I-182 from 20th Avenue and crossed into the motorcyclist's path, according to the Washington State Patrol.
Uriostegui was cited for making an unsafe lane change.
