Helicopters flew two injured Tri-City men to the hospital Thursday after their pickup truck they collided with a street sweeper northeast of Pasco, officials said.
Michael Brodaczynski, 47, was driving north on the Pasco-Kahlotus Highway when he crashed into the sweeper about 17 miles northeast of Pasco shortly before noon, according to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office.
Authorities say the crash was caused by low visibility from dust in the area.
Brodaczynski of Richland and passenger Dan Sedore, 51, of Kennewick, suffered non-life threatening injuries, the sheriff’s office said. Their conditions were not immediately available.
