The motorcycle involved in Friday’s accident along Newcastle Golf Club Road rests near a guardrail. By Christina Corrales-Toy

A motorcyclist died after colliding with a guardrail on Newcastle Golf Club Road on Friday morning, according to King County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Sgt. Cindi West.

The motorcyclist was traveling eastbound on Newcastle Golf Club Road when the driver came upon a left-hand curve in the road, failed to navigate it and struck the guardrail, West said.

The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at Harborview Medical Center, according to West.

West said there were no witnesses and no identification on the motorcyclist. Alcohol does not appear to be involved in the accident, but West said the incident is still under investigation.

The identity of the victim was not available, pending notification of next of kin.

The incident occurred near the Red Town Trailhead of Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park.

Police closed Newcastle Golf Club Road just east of the 155th Avenue intersection for nearly four hours while investigators processed the scene.

    I came upon this accident on Friday and it bothered me sp I came back the next day, and it is very obvious what happened, right before that hairpin turn the sun is directly in your eyes and I think he was temporarily blinded and didn’t see the turn, I do not believe the young man was driving to fast or wreckless that might be assumed because he was young guy on a sport bike

    Thanks James for your comments. I am his Dad and your comments make me believe in one instant he saw the blinding light of the sun, and then the bright lights of heaven with the outstretched arms of Jesus awaiting him. The Doctor that worked on Adam said that he did not suffer…All that my son experienced in that moment was the Heavenly Light!

    Hi Craig, On my second comment I was using my phone so sorry for the misspelling and I see from your post your son’s name is Adam. Are you going to have a service for him?

    Sincerely, James
