An intersection near downtown Kennewick was partially blocked for a short time Thursday when an SUV apparently ran a red light and crashed into a minivan.

The 12:25 p.m. crash was at the intersection of Kennewick Avenue and Fruitland Street.

Kennewick police Officer Ron Salter said a Jeep Grand Cherokee, driven by Chester Leslie, 64, of Kennewick, was going south on Fruitland when he continued through the red light and hit the van going west on Kennewick Avenue.

The Dodge Grand Caravan was driven by Michael Selz, 50, of Kennewick.

Selz was not hurt. Leslie was treated at Kennewick General Hospital.
