A rider’s joyride on a stolen motorcycle had an abrupt ending Wednesday night as the bike collided with a vehicle in the intersection of Denny and Olive Way. Here’s the eyewitness picture and account from Tiffany Von Arnim’s tiff_seattle Livejournal:
Just a few minutes ago I was standing in front of the Bus Stop and heard a crash. I looked to my left and saw human body flying over a car. The motorcyclist laid down in the street for about 30 seconds before getting up, limping to the sidewalk, yelling “Fuck!”, and then running down the street. It was somewhat surreal and a little bit like the scene in Pulp Fiction when Bruce Willis rams into Ving Rhames in his Ford Fiesta. Eventually the police showed up, and I guess the rider is off in some alley somewhere bleeding to death. Who knows?
According to Seattle police radio reports, the rider in the 7:10 PM crash was last seen limping from the scene of the collision westbound wearing a black and orange riding suit. The police dispatcher confirmed that the 2004 Yamaha was stolen. A search of the area for the rider was not successful. Nobody else was injured in the crash.
