Motorcyclist Killed in Collision with Dump Truck

Early Tuesday morning, a Seattle man died in a motorcycle accident when the bike he was riding collided with a dump truck.

According to Sergeant Jeff Johnson, the motorcycle was heading north on East Lake Sammamish Parkway. It then struck the side of a dump truck. The dump truck was turning left from 229th Avenue Southeast.

The driver of the motorcycle, a 44 year old man whose name has not been released to the media, was killed instantly. The intersection was blocked off for several hours while witnesses were interviewed and relevant measurements were taken.

No comments were made by Johnson as to which driver was at fault. Also uncertain was which driver had the right of way before the truck accident occurred.
