A 23-year-old motorcyclist was killed Sunday in a head-on collision in Gig Harbor.
Parker F. Raft was driving on Sehmel Drive NW at 3:30 p.m. when he drifted into oncoming traffic and hit the front of a Ford pickup truck, said Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer.
Raft was thrown from his bike. He was taken to Madigan Army Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Speed is believed to have caused the crash.
Raft was driving on a suspended license and had a warrant for his arrest on suspicion of reckless driving, Troyer said.
The occupants of the pickup truck were not injured.
