The motorcyclist who lost his foot in a collision on Thursday, November 7, 2019 has been identified as Dustin Nordahl, 37, of Lincoln MT.

He was traveling eastbound on NE 205th (SR104) headed toward Ballinger Way when he collided with a vehicle which was turning left onto the HOV lane entrance to I-5 southbound. The vehicle was driven by a 36 year old man from Lake Forest Park.

The LFP man's vehicle had been stopped in the left turn lane before making the turn. After the collision, it came to rest at the beginning of the southbound I-5 ramp.

Nordahl and his motorcycle slid approximately 40 feet, coming to rest on the right shoulder of eastbound SR 104 under the I-5 overpass.

The driver was wearing a seatbelt and was not injured. Nordahl was wearing a helmet.

As reported previously, a LFP Police Officer on her way to work happened on the scene and immediately applied first aid to Nordahl, who had lost his foot. He was transported to Harborview by Shoreline Fire.

The scene was blocked off for three hours for investigation and clearing. Both vehicles were towed.
