Othello motorcyclist dies in head-on crash with semi

An Othello motorcyclist died Monday after crashing head-on into a semi-truck in Adams County, officials said.

Shane A. Kinder, 20, was driving west on McManamon Road, about 1.5 miles west of Morgan Lake Road, when he crossed into the opposite lane of travel and struck the semi-truck, said Adams County sheriff's officials.

He died at the scene of the crash, which happened at 5:15 p.m. Monday.

The semi tractor-trailer was driven by Ricardo Sarmiento-Rosales, 33, of Moses Lake. He was not hurt.

A second motorcyclist, who was not traveling with Kinder, was hurt after he drove into the debris and lost control of his bike, officials said.

Favian Gomez, 19, of Othello, was treated for minor injuries at Samaritan Hospital in Moses Lake.
