Danny Knowles Killed, Christopher Wade Arrested Following DUI Motorcycle Accident on Highway 510 Near 5 Freeway
LACEY, WA (April 11, 2019) – A 33-year-old man died Tuesday night in a DUI motorcycle crash along Highway 510 near the 5 Freeway.
State troopers say it wasn’t Danny Knowles whom authorities found was impaired but the driver who struck him.
Around 10:20 p.m., Christopher Wade hit the 33-year-old motorcyclist upon making a left turn onto a cross street. Knowles struck Wade’s eastbound red Mazda as he headed west in a blue Yamaha.
As a result, Knowles’ motorcycle traveled to the cross street while the Mazda came to a stop in the middle of the highway.
Soon after, authorities responded to the crash and found the cyclist with fatal injuries.
Inside the Mazda, an 8-year-old boy suffered a laceration and later sought treatment at a local hospital. Two other children were unharmed, as well as Wade, whom officers arrested on suspicion of DUI, vehicular assault, vehicular homicide and three counts of reckless endangerment.
