Port Angeles man injured in motorcycle wreck

PORT ANGELES — A Port Angeles man was injured Tuesday after he lost control of the motorcycle he was riding and crashed east of the city, the State Patrol said.

Brandon C. Zeeb, 50, was traveling westbound on U.S. Highway 101 when he turned north onto Lewis Road, lost control and left the roadway at 7:57 a.m., troopers said in a report on the wreck.

He was treated and released from Olympic Medical Center, a hospital spokeswoman said.

The 2001 Suzuki GSX-R750 was moving at a high rate of speed before the crash, troopers said. Speed was listed as the cause of the crash.

Potential charges of reckless driving are pending, the State Patrol said.

Zeeb was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash and drugs or alcohol were not involved, troopers said.

The motorcycle was totaled.
