A Yakima man was injured Thursday morning in a two-vehicle collision on I-82 near Prosser that blocked eastbound traffic.

The crash occurred at 7:35 a.m. when a GMC van driven by John Henning, 57, of Yakima struck the rear of a semi-truck, according to a release from the Washington State Patrol. Henning was transported to Kadlec Regional Medical Center and was considered in serious condition immediately following the crash. The driver of the semi was not injured.

The state patrol said neither drugs nor alcohol were involved and all people involved were wearing seat belts.
