Motorcyclist killed in collision identified

SPOKANE, Wash. - The motorcyclist killed Wednesday evening after losing control of his motorcycle in North Spokane County has been identified as 51-year-old Michael Wayne Fraser of Grapeview, Washington.

The Spokane County Sheriff's office says Fraser was southbound on Market when he attempted to pass another vehicle in a "no pass" zone just south of Hawthorne Road.

He lost control of his 1985 rebuilt motorcycle and it tipped over onto its side. An oncoming driver saw the sliding motorcycle and had braked to almost a complete stop when the cycle hit the front of his car.

The motorcycle went under the front of the car, trapping Fraser beneath it and killing him almost instantly.

Traffic investigators said the motorcycle slid nearly 200 feet before crashing into the car.

Fraser is reputed to be an associate of a Northwest motorcycle gang.
