A 21-year-old man sustained several fractures after crashing his motorcycle into the side of a truck at the corner of 32nd Ave NW and NW 77th St. this afternoon. The man is in stable condition at Harborview Medical Center, according to Kyle Moore from the Seattle Fire Department.
According to witnesses at the scene, a pick-up truck was traveling northbound on 32nd Ave NW when the motorcycle failed to stop at the corner of NW 77th St. and ran into it. The driver of the truck is uninjured.
Craig Stebbins lives on the corner where the accident happened, and said he’s seen several accidents here, which he blames on the barely-visible stop sign on NW 77th St. going eastbound. “The real story is that stop sign. This is the fourth accident in three years,” Stebbins said, adding that it’s difficult to see the stop sign on NW 77th St. due to some trees and bushes.
Looking eastbound on NW 77th St. Stebbins says this stop sign is barely visible, causing several crashes in recent years.
Seattle Police have taped off the corner at NW 77th St and 32nd Ave NW to investigate the scene. We’ll update with any new information.
