PORT TOWNSEND — A Lynnwood motorcycle rider was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle after he lost control on state Highway 19 and drove into a ditch.
Benjamin K. Sorensen, 36, was traveling north at a high rate of speed about 15 miles southeast of Port Townsend at 8:16 p.m. Friday when his 2014 Kawasaki ZX1000 sport motorcycle flew into the northbound lane’s ditch, according to the State Patrol.
Harborview did not return requests for his condition on Saturday.
Sorensen has been cited for DUI, said the State Patrol, which attributed the wreck to speeding.
The highway was cleared by 9:50 p.m., according to the state Department of Transportation.
