A motorcyclist died Sunday after he crossed the center line of Marine View Drive and hit a Nissan Maxima head-on, Tacoma police said.

John Bennett, 27, was pronounced dead at the scene. He lived in Seattle.

Police responded to the accident around noon in the 1600 block of Marine View Drive. Traffic was blocked for several hours, police spokesman Mark Fulghum said.

The driver said she had wrist soreness, but was otherwise uninjured.

Nothing at the scene indicated that drugs or alcohol were involved, Fulghum said.
