A Zillah man has died following a Friday collision with a tractor three miles northeast of Sunnyside.
Jose D. Cortes, 34, was driving west on Van Belle Road near Ray Road about 6 p.m. when he crossed the centerline and hit a John Deere tractor towing some farm equipment and then hit a pickup truck, said the Washington State Patrol.
Cortes, who was driving a 1990 Lincoln Town Car, was seriously hurt and taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he died on Sunday.
The tractor driver Clifford R. Van Belle, 77, of Sunnyside, and the driver of the pickup, Blake Van Belle, 16, of Sunnyside, were not injured.
The cause of the wreck is still under investigation, said the WSP.
