A motorcyclist was killed late Friday night, the result of an accident about eight miles east of Enumclaw.
The crash at 11:49 a.m. occurred on state Route 410 and involved three motorcycles and a Jeep Cherokee.
The Jeep driver, identified as 73-year-old Henry H. Germer of Bremerton, reportedly was traveling west on SR 410 and crossed a double-yellow center line. His vehicle struck three eastbound motorcycles, including a 2003 Harley-Davidson ridden by Thomas J. Finken of Bothell, Wash. He died at the scene.
Other cyclists involved were Bruce McLeod of Issaquah, Wash., and Christopher Littlejohn of North Bend, Wash. McLeod’s cycle was totaled and his injuries resulted in a transport to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Littlejohn was not injured and his Kawasaki was driven from the scene.
The Jeep driver also was injured and taken to Harborview. His vehicle was totaled and towed from the scene of the collision.
The eastbound lane of SR 410 was closed for six hours following the crash.
