Update to previous story

The rider of the motor scooter (not motorcycle as previously reported) has died of his injuries in the two-vehicle collision at 19th and Ballinger on Monday evening, December 27.

The Washington State Patrol reports that an 18 year old Edmonds man was driving a Scion passenger car east on Ballinger (State Route 104) in Shoreline, turning left onto 19th Ave. NE. The rider of a Zhongneng scooter, a 63 year old Bothell man, traveling west on State Route 104 struck the Scion in the front bumper. The rider was thrown from the scooter and taken to the hospital but did not survive his injuries.

The cause of the collision is still under investigation but heavy rain that decreased visibility is believed to be a factor.

The Patrol warns,
"Now more than ever the Washington State Patrol urges motorists to drive with caution. Rain and snow are only a few of the challenges that decrease visibility on the roadway. Take time to make sure all vehicle lights are functional and not covered by snow or dirt. Motorcycle and bicycle riders should use extra caution and wear visible clothing with reflective striping to increase visibility."
