A 50-year-old Lacey motorcyclist was taken to the hospital Monday after he was hit by a car near Oakville, according to the Washington State Patrol.

About 6:40 p.m., the Lacey man, and a woman driving a Volkswagen Jetta, were both headed west on US 12 in Grays Harbor County. At US 12 and Porter Creek Road, troopers say the woman entered a center turn lane to turn left, then changed her mind and turned right into the westbound lane, striking the motorcycle, according to the State Patrol.

The injured Lacey man was taken to Summit Pacific Medical Center in Elma.

The 20-year-old Onalaska woman faces a possible charge of second-degree negligent driving.
