Spokane man dies after SR 902 collision


A Spokane man was pronounced dead following a two-vehicle collision, Saturday, May 10.

According to the Washington State Patrol, a 2013 Ford F150 pickup truck, driven by Frank C. Watson, 71, of St. John, Wash., was stopped northbound on Craig Road at State Route 902. A 2004 Harley Davidson XL 1200, ridden by Thomas P. Bacon, 59, of Spokane, was westbound on State Route 902 approaching Craig Road. The pickup proceeded into the intersection in front of the motorcycle, which struck the truck.

Watson and his passenger, Billy J. Watson, 72, of St. John, Wash., were not injured in the accident. Bacon, who was wearing a helmet during the accident, was taken to Sacred Heart Hospital where he later died. Bacon’s family has been notified.

The WSP listed the cause of the accident as failure to yield and cited Watson for such.
