A motorcyclist who crashed and died Saturday on Martin Way East in Lacey was identified Sunday as Scott Crismon, 51, according to the Thurston County Coroner's Office.

About 3 p.m. Saturday, Crismon was eastbound on Martin Way at a high speed, according to Lacey Fire District 3 Battalion Chief Ryan Fox, when a car pulled out in front of him in the area of River Ridge Drive Southeast.

He swerved to avoid colliding with the car and laid his bike down, Fox said. The rider was going so fast that Fox said his motorcycle skidded along the street for another 100 yards.

Crismon wound up in a ditch and died at the scene, Fox said.

Fox estimated the motorcycle was traveling at 90 miles per hour.
