Carlos H. Silva Morales, 40, was taken to a Pasco hospital for treatment of injuries he suffered in the 12:14 p.m. crash, the Washington State Patrol reported.

Morales was southbound in a 1999 International truck when he lost control, hit a guardrail and overturned near Milepost 9, the patrol reported. He was wearing a seatbelt.
