Motorcyclist in Shilshole accident passes from injuries

Update: We’ve just heard news that the motorcyclist in the August 14 incident near Shilshole Marina has passed away from his injuries. Scott Allen, remembered by his neighbor Rebecca Haywood, was known as the “friendly painter who lives on 62nd.”

“Scott was a friend and was our best neighbor in Ballard!” Haywood tells My Ballard. “Scott would sit out on the lawn after work, give a smile, strike up a conversation and watched out for our block.”

An impromptu memorial has been set out on his front yard, with a bouquet of flowers, a bottle of beer and notes from his friends.

Original (8/15/18): A man is in serious but stable condition after sustaining serious injuries from colliding with a vehicle near Shilshole Marina yesterday morning.

According to Seattle Police, the collision happened at 9:57am on Tuesday morning in the 7100 block of Seaview Ave. NW. A BMW station wagon was travelling north while a motorcycle was travelling south. The BMW driver turned left in front of the motorcycle and the vehicles collided; the 52-year-old man driving the motorcycle was ejected from the impact. SPD says he suffered significant injuries and was transported to Harborview Medical Center.

The 81-year-old motorist was uninjured* in the collision. SPD says detectives from the Traffic Collision Investigation Squad (TCIS) responded and processed the scene; the incident remains an active and ongoing investigation.
