Cle Elum Man in Critical Condition After Weekend Motorcycle Crash
A Cle Elum man is in critical condition after a high speed crash Saturday North of Ellensburg.
Sheriff's Deputies responded to the crash site, one mile North of Highway 970 on Teanaway Road. They found a single motorcycle off the road, and the driver, 48 year old Joe Preston, unresponsive but breathing.
A witness who was operating a second motorcycle behind the driver said Preston was driving at least 90 miles per hour at the time of the crash. Alcohol is said to have been a factor.
