RICHLAND, Wash.-- A Kennewick man has died after driving into a light pole in Richland.
Washington State Patrol troopers say 83-year-old Tom Shelton was driving from State Route 240 to Columbia Park Trail around 8:00 p.m. Sunday. They say he drove through the intersection near the Benton Franklin transit complex and into the pole.
Troopers say speed may have played a role and Shelton was not wearing a seatbelt. State Patrol is still investigating.
