A Tumwater man was killed Saturday afternoon after he crashed his motorcycle into a guardrail, according to the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office.
The man was identified as Phillip Hamblin, 55.
Speed may have been a factor in the crash, Sgt. Carla Carter said.
Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched about 5:40 p.m. Saturday to the 10800 block of Gate Road Southwest, which is near Rochester.
