    Just read it in the Olympian.
    Chris Hanson, 30, from Yelm--is he on here? Airlifted to Harborview.
    2004 GSXR600, into a ditch at Offut Lk and Marshall about 8pm last night.
    Hubby and I heard the sirens but that's all.

    100% preventable to. Alcohol (at any level) and bikes don't mix.

    What does it take for the investigators to "believe" alcohol was a factor???

    I really think it shouldn't be in the paper if it's speculation... it should read "he blew a .09" or "toxicology report has not yet been performed".

    I was in a motorcycle accident years ago and it would be easy to assume alcohol was a factor (since it was about 2am) but I was involved in a hit and run... I willingly blew a 0.00000000000 before I was ran to the hospital. I would be mad as hell if I didn't have time for a breathalyser and the paper reported some speculation as to me being drunk.

    I agree. There seems to be a lot of speculation these days.

    Either they said Yes evidence point to alcohol being a factor or you dont report it it.

    Offut Lk and Marshall.

    It seems that when alcohol and/or speed is a factor, there is an article. Some years ago, the Reaper went down and there was no alcohol whatsoever--and no article.
