CHEHALIS – The Tenino motorcyclist who was in critical condition yesterday morning from a Friday evening wreck passed away yesterday, according to authorities.

Sky M. Lelo, 38, was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle following the collision on state Route 507 near O’Connor Road in south Thurston County.

The Washington State Patrol has only said that he was traveling on a Harley Davidson XL1200 when he attempted to avoid traffic and was ejected. He was wearing a helmet and its unknown if drugs or alcohol played a role, according to the investigating trooper.

The state patrol initially said Lelo was headed northbound but in information released yesterday evening said the Harley was headed southbound.

    Every once in a while, one of these fools number comes up. Lot’s of risk factors here. You can only cheat the Reaper so many times.

    BTW, but for the grace of god, there go I. I’ve been just a big as idiot as this guy when I was younger, but for some reason they wouldn’t let me out of this world, so I guess that I’m lucky.
