According to the report, Snyder was riding with another motorcyclist east on Highway 308 near Scandia road when a Chevy Trailblazer driven by a 22-year-old Silverdale woman abruptly made a left-hand turn in front of the two motorcyclists. Snyder ran into the Trailblazer and was killed. Her companion was able to lay down his motorcycle to avoid an accident.
It is the duty of a driver making a left turn to yield the right of way to any approaching vehicle. The driver must exercise caution and maintain a margin of safety for any on coming motorist.
