WASHINGTON TERRACE — A Washington Terrace motorcyclist died Monday when police say another vehicle pulled out in front of him.
About 7:40 a.m., a 61-year-old man was on his motorcycle and about to enter the intersection of 4800 South and 300 West near Washington Terrace when a woman driving a Honda Civic, who was at a two-way stop, pulled out in front of the man, according to the Weber County Sheriff's Office. The woman, also 61, told police the sun was in her eyes and she didn't see the motorcycle.
The motorcycle was traveling about 30 to 35 mph when it ran into the side of the Honda, according to investigators. The man was wearing a helmet and was initially semi-conscious after the accident, said Weber County Sheriff's Sgt. Lane Findlay. He suffered a broken leg and "other injuries" but had no signs of head trauma. But the man died when he arrived at the hospital.
Findlay said an autopsy would determine how the man died.
The man was driving home from work at the time of the accident. His name was not immediately released.
The woman was cited for failure to yield and driving on a denied license.
