5 Dead in Seattle Motorcycle Collisions
SEATTLE, WA (August 6, 2019) – Five motorcyclists died in separate collisions on August 3 in Seattle.
One of the collisions occurred early Saturday morning in the 2400 block of Maple Valley Highway. The collision left orange spray paint markings on the road.
“It was a lot. It was really a lot,” Slim, the bar’s manager said. “And it was very graphic and emotional.”
According to reports, a man traveling east collided with a car that traveled behind him. The rider died at the scene.
As a result, two riders died in a collision when one drove across the center line on Highway 101 near Brinnon. After that, it struck another motorcyclist riding the opposite direction.
In addition, another motorcyclist died when he struck an SUV that failed to yield for a left turn on Highway 12 near Ethel, WSP troopers added.
Responders flew another motorcyclist to Harborview Medical Center after a collision. The accident happened at 142nd Avenue Southwest and Tilley Road South near Maytown. The condition of that motorcyclist is still unknown.
In addition, a 24-year-old motorcyclist stopped in a gore point on 5 Freeway in Tacoma. However, a southbound van struck and killed him. As a result, a passenger in a third vehicle suffered injuries.
