A 38-year-old motorcyclist was killed late Saturday when he was hit by a turning SUV in Parkland, according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.
Medical examiners identified the man as Miguel Bautista, 38, of Parkland and said he died of traumatic injuries at an area hospital
Bautista was traveling west on 112th Street South just past Park Avenue South about 11:15 p.m. when a 53-year-old woman turned her SUV toward a convenience store parking lot and hit him, sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said Monday.
The roads were rain-slick at the time of the crash, Troyer said.
The woman, who showed no signs of impairment, was cited for failing to yield the right of way, Troyer said.
