Two Clark County men were injured early Saturday in a two-vehicle crash in Brush Prairie, according to the Washington State Patrol.

A WSP bulletin said Brian G. Hughes, 41, of Vancouver was driving a 2001 Honda Civic east on Northeast 119th Street at 5:35 a.m. when he ran a red light at state Highway 503 and struck the side of a southbound 1999 GMC Denali driven by Eric L. Burke, 43, of Battle Ground.

Both men were treated at and discharged from PeaceHealth Southwest Washington Medical Center.

The WSP said Hughes was cited for driving under the influence and failure to obey a traffic device.

Both vehicles were totaled, the WSP reported.
