Police Report: November 4

4300 block of 31st Street: At about 12:00 pm officers responded to a motorcycle collision. Investigation revealed that two juveniles, one rider and one passenger crashed a red Honda motorcycle into a fence. Witnesses said that just prior to the accident the motorcycle was seen driving in excess of 100 mph on Rainier Avenue. Evidence showed that the rider tried to stop the bike at the intersection of 31st Street but was unsuccessful because of the wet pavement and the bike’s speed.
