A Richland man and Benton City woman were hurt when their motorcycle crashed two miles east of Prosser on Interstate 82.
The wreck happened at 7 p.m. Monday when the motorcycle tried to pass another car in a construction zone, said the Washington State Patrol. The driver then lost control.
The driver, 41-year-old Matthew Swink, will be cited for second-degree negligent driving. Swink and his passenger, Dawn Gipson, 45, were taken to Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland.
Swink is in satisfactory condition and Gipson has been treated and released.
