A motorcyclist who died Sunday when he was hit by a car in Tacoma was Zachariah Goni, the Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office said Monday.

The 19-year-old Tacoma man was headed south on Tacoma Mall Boulevard when a northbound vehicle turned left on South 64th Street and hit him, police spokeswoman Loretta Cool said.
