Crash injures Mesa man

A Mesa man was injured when the pickup truck he was driving collided with the back of a semi truck.

Caleb E. Bowman, 20, was taken to Kadlec Regional Medical Center following the crash Thursday morning on Highway 17 just north of Mesa, according to the Washington State Patrol.

A semi-truck driven by Oscar T. Arteaga, 45, of Pasco, was turning from Merion Road onto the highway when the crash happened, troopers said. Arteaga failed to yield to the pickup, causing the crash.

Arteaga, who was not injured, was apparently cited for failing to yield, troopers said.
