Motorcyclist, 24, killed in crash with SUV in Sodo

A 24-year-old motorcyclist was killed in a crash when he hit an SUV and was thrown from his bike  in Sodo Tuesday afternoon, according to a police report.

The man was speeding and passing vehicles using the bicycle lane on southbound East Marginal Way South when he hit a green Isuzu Trooper SUV turning westbound onto South Spokane Street in front of him, the report said.

Seattle police and firefighters responded around 1 p.m., and medics pronounced the man dead at the scene. The King County Medical Examiner’s Office will determine the exact cause of death.

As a precautionary measure, an ambulance took the 50-year-old driver of the Isuzu to Harborview Medical Center, the report said.  The crash is still under investigation.
