Kent man dies in Seattle motorcycle accident
A 32-year-old Kent man died in a motorcycle accident on Aug. 27 in Seattle.
The man was driving a 2006 Honda vt750 eastbound on the West Seattle Freeway at about 1:03 a.m. when he took the exit ramp to southbound Interstate 5 and failed to negotiate the curve, according to a Washington State Patrol report. The crash ejected the driver and a passenger and came to the rest in the roadway.
Speed was listed by the State Patrol as the cause of the accident. The accident blocked the roadway for 2 hours and 45 minutes.
The passenger, a 22-year-old Puyallup woman, remained in satisfactory condition Tuesday at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, according to a hospital spokeswoman.
The identity of the driver has not yet been released by the King County Medical Examiner's Office. Both the driver and passenger were wearing helmets.
