Motorcycle-SUV Crash on Highway 2 Leaves One Dead

By Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. on June 21, 2012

A 24-year-old motorcyclist lost his life recently when his bike collided with a sport utility vehicle (SUV) on Highway 2, according to a recent news report by KXLY.

When the accident occurred, the motorcyclist was heading west on Highway 2 going to Fairchild Air Force Base, where he served as an airman and was enrolled in the Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape (SERE) training school. He was near South Hayford Road when an SUV pulled out from the local mall into the road directly ahead of him.

The motorcyclist was unable to avoid the other vehicle and crashed into it, falling from his bike. Rescue workers rushed him to a local hospital, but the severe injuries he suffered in the crash proved fatal and he was pronounced dead at the hospital. The driver of the SUV, a 36-year-old Washington woman, was not injured in the fatal motorcycle collision.

About 78 motorcyclists lose their lives in Washington every year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). While this number is low compared to other states, the loss of even one life on the road has a devastating impact on families, friends, and co-workers.

Motorcycle accidents are less common than car accidents, but when they do happen, the motorcyclist may suffer serious injury or even death.
