A 52-year-old Belfair motorcyclist was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle late Monday after a collision with an SUV on state Route 302 in Pierce County.
According to a press memo from the Washington State Patrol:
The man was riding a 2017 black Harley Davidson west on state Route 302 near milepost 8 when he attempted to pass a vehicle on a curve. As he tried to reenter the westbound lane, he hit a 2012 Volkswagon Touareg SUV that was headed east.
The 62-year-old man driving the SUV and his 61-year-old female passenger, both of Tacoma, were not injured in the crash.
The motorcycle and the SUV were totaled.
The crash was reported at 8:42 p.m., and the eastbound lane of Route 302 was blocked for three hours. The cause remains under investigation.
