Spanaway Pastor Dies in Motorcycle Crash

A local pastor was killed Sunday when his motorcycle crashed with a passenger vehicle on Eighth Avenue South in Roy. Thom Carlson, 43, was transported to a local medical center, where he died from his injuries at just before 4 p.m. Sunday afternoon. Carlson served as pastor at the Real Life Family Center in Spanaway. His congregation held services Sunday to mourn their loss.

This accident is a sad reminder of just how deadly a motorcycle crash can be. When motorcycles are involved in accidents with passenger vehicles, motorcyclists and their passengers are more likely to suffer serious, debilitating injuries, or be killed as a result of the accident than are passengers of other vehicles involved in the accident. If your loved one was killed or injured in a Seattle motorcycle accident, you may have a claim for wrongful death.
