According to Washington State Patrol, at about 6:36 p.m., Jason Charles Yu, a 23-year-old man from Bothell, was traveling eastbound on a motorcycle on State Route 523 in Shoreline, when he struck a Seattle driver. Fifty-two-year-old Eve Angela Hammond, was traveling westbound in State Route 523, making a left turn on Northeast 145th Street and 17th Avenue Northeast.
