Fatal Motorcycle Crash in South Spokane County
On August 26th, 2015, at 9:30 p.m., Spokane County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a reported one vehicle crash involving a motorcycle in the area of Cheney Plaza Road and Coe Road in south Spokane County.
A citizen reported the adult male driver of the motorcycle appeared to have lost control, crashed and was injured. Fire personnel arrived at the scene and quickly provided medical treatment but their efforts were unsuccessful and the driver was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Reconstruction Technicians were called to the scene to investigate the crash. Investigators learned the citizen, who reported the crash, came upon the scene after it had already occurred and called 911. At this time, with the limited initial information, investigators do not believe speed or impairment were involved.
This investigation is ongoing and the identity of the motorcyclist will be released by the Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office at a later date.
No further information is available at this time.
