A Bothell, Wash., man was killed and two Tri-Cities residents were injured Monday evening in a head-on collision on Interstate 90 near the Fishtrap Lake exit.

Cary J. Bates, 55, died at the scene of the accident eight miles northeast of Sprague about 5:30 p.m., according to the Washington State Patrol.

He was headed west when his 1992 Infinity G20 passenger car went off the roadway into the median and into the freeway’s eastbound lanes.

His car collided head-on with a 2004 Hyundai car driven by Brian R. Wilson, 31, of Pasco. Both vehicles came to rest in the eastbound lanes.

Wilson and a passenger, Tiffany S. McCann, 29, of Richland, were flown by helicopter to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center. Both were reported in satisfactory condition today.

The eastbound lanes were blocked for more than an hour, and then partially blocked until before 9 p.m. The cause of the accident is under investigation, troopers said.
