MOSES LAKE — A motorcyclist was sent to the hospital Thursday morning after being hit by a car in the Mae Valley area, according to a Grant County Sheriff’s Office release.

GCSO alerted the public to the accident via social media and asked that the public stay clear of the area until the accident was cleared if possible.

GCSO Deputies and Fire & Ambulance were at the scene at about 7:30 a.m. at roads 4 and E Northeast.

The release states a silver 2013 Kia Rio being driven by a juvenile was traveling southbound on Road E and had stopped for the stop sign at Road 4. After stopping, the driver of the Kia proceeded into the intersection in front of a black 2001 Honda VT750 motorcycle being driven by 56-year-old Carlos Bazan, of Ephrata, who was traveling eastbound on Road 4. The motorcycle collided with the front passenger side of the Kia.

Bazan was transported by ambulance to Samaritan Hospital and neither the driver of the car nor two juvenile passengers were injured.

The roadway was cleared later that morning.

The driver of the Kia will be cited for failing to yield the right of way and Bazan will be cited for not having a valid license and no insurance, the release states.
