Pedro Farias Cisneros, 38, of Pasco, was the third driver in the 5:48 a.m. pileup on state Highway 225 at Abby Avenue.

The crash occurred when Dennis Travis, 33, of Richland crossed the centerline in his southbound 2002 Mazda RX-5, the Washington State Patrol reported. His vehicle was struck by two northbound vehicles.
