On Saturday morning, a motorcycle crash took the life of 43-year-old Trevor J Conklin on I-90.
As per the initial information, the fatal two-vehicle accident took place on I-90, east of mile marker 297. The reports showed that a motorcycle was behind a car traveling on I-90 in the left lane when the car slowed down for heavy traffic. The motorcycle hit the car as a result of which both the occupants of the motorcycle were ejected.
Officials initially reported that a life-flight medical helicopter picked up the motorcyclist who was critically injured but it was later confirmed that the victim, identified as 43-year-old Trevor J Conklin from Spokane, was declared deceased at the scene.
