PASCO – The president of the Port of Pasco Commission has died after a van crashed into his four-wheel farm vehicle.

Multiple news outlets reported that 74-year-old Ronald Reimann was driving east of the Pasco-Kahlotus Highway when a van rear-ended Reimann’s vehicle Sunday evening.

Franklin County sheriff’s deputies say Pedro Rubi-Juarez was driving a 2001 Chrysler van when it struck Reimann’s vehicle.

The sheriff’s office said Reimann died at the scene.

Sheriff’s detectives are investigating.

Reimann joined the Port of Pasco as a commissioner in 2012.
