A Moses Lake man is in critical condition after crashing his motorcycle on Tuesday night.
Cliff Nicholas, 67, lost control of his 2005 Yamaha motorcycle while taking a curve. Nicholas suffered life threatening injuries when he was thrown from his motorcycle and into a nearby field. He was traveling northbound on Stonecrest Road Northeast, just west of Neppel Road Northeast.
Following the crash, he was taken first to Samaritan Hospital and was then flown by MedStar to Providence-Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane. Nicholas has head and chest injuries and is listed as being in critical condition.
Nicholas was wearing a DOT approved helmet, but investigators believe that alcohol was a factor in the crash. Grant County Deputies and the Grant County Motor Traffic Unit are investigating.
