Kelso man dies in Sunday afternoon motorcycle accident


Washington State Patrol troopers are investigating a fatal motorcycle accident Sunday afternoon in the 1000 block of Fifth Avenue in Kelso, according to police.

Kelso police responded to the "motorcycle versus car" accident around 2:55 p.m. Sunday, said Kelso Police Chief Darr Kirk. The motorcylist, 56-year-old Kevin Jay Hamrick of Kelso, died in the accident. 

The Cowlitz County coroner said the cause of death was blunt force trauma, and the manner of death was an accident. The coroner is running a toxicology report, but results won't  be available for a few weeks. 

Hamrick was on the ground when police arrived on scene, according to the dispatch log. A woman performed CPR on him, who was reportedly bleeding from his ears, according to the log. 

Police called in Washington State Patrol troopers to do an accident recreation to determine the cause and any potential charges, Kirk said.
