Hoquiam, WA – A motorcycle versus car accident sent a man to Harborview yesterday.

The Washington State Patrol tells KXRO that on Monday afternoon just after 2:00 p.m. a 65 year old El Monte, CA man was heading north on Highway 101 on a 2011 Harley Davidson motorcycle about two miles north of Hoquiam. 

The State Patrol says that a 1999 Volkswagen Jetta was also heading north and was waiting to turn left.
