Two vehicle collision leaves man injured

A motorcyclist will be airlifted to Harborview Medical Center after he sustained injuries from a collision with a truck driver.

Sequim residents Samuel Barcklow, 27, was going eastbound on West Washington Street on his motorcycle when he was hit by Joseph Schroeder, 43, driving a white Ford truck coming across onto 14th Avenue just a little before 4 p.m. on Oct. 3.

Sequim Police said the man driving the truck did not see the motorcyclist when the two vehicles collided and, “it appeared to be a legitimate accident in every sense of the word,” Sequim Police Sergeant Dave Campbell said.

Emergency responders tended to the motorcyclist who sustained non-life-threatening leg injuries. The man driving the truck was uninjured.

Representatives from Harborview Medical Center said Barcklow was in satisfactory conditions on Oct. 4.

Sequim Police said no drugs or alcohol were involved. The motorcyclist was wearing a helmet and the truck driver was wearing a seat belt.

Campbell said there were no criminal charges.
