A 60-year-old Roy motorcyclist was seriously injured Monday afternoon in a collision with a pickup in Graham, according to the Washington State Patrol.
The State Patrol is investigating the crash on Meridian Avenue East and 274th Street East, which happened about 2 p.m., Trooper Todd Bartolac said.
The Roy man was riding south on Meridian at the intersection with 274th Street when the northbound truck, driven by a 55-year-old Rainier man, turned left in front of him, according to a State Patrol news release.
The motorcyclist was thrown from his bike, which was totaled, the release said.
Never miss a local story.
He was transported to Harborview Medical Center by helicopter, Bartolac said.
The State Patrol had to alternate traffic through the intersection for about two hours.
