A Kennewick pickup truck driver lost control, crossing the median of Interstate 182 to strike a van going the other direction near milepost 11 on Friday.
Graciano S. Garcia, 68, was driving a silver 2001 Chevrolet Silverado west when he lost control at 10:30 a.m., crossing into the traffic heading east and striking a silver 2015 Chevrolet Express van with a utility trailer, according to the Washington State Patrol.
The van was driven by William V. Montgomery, 28, of Kennewick. He was not injured but his passenger, Steven L. Thompson, 51, of Pasco, was taken to Lourdes Medical Center for treatment.
The WSP reported the cause of the collision as improperly lane travel and Garcia was issued a ticket for second-degree negligent driving.
