RICHLAND, WA (May 23, 2018) – The Dutch Bros. Coffee community mourns the loss of one of their assistant managers after a motorcycle collision last Wednesday. 22-year-old Zade Hakki was on his way to work when his motorcycle collided with a pickup truck at an intersection.
According to the reports, the fatal collision happened around 5:30 PM at the intersection of Steptoe Street and Center Parkway. Hakki’s motorcycle collided with a Dodge Ram pickup truck that was pulling a utility trailer carrying heavy equipment.
Hakki was wearing a helmet at the time of the collision, but sustained fatal injuries due to blunt force trauma. The driver of the Dodge, Owen Clark, was reportedly unharmed from the crash.
