EVERETT, Wash. - A motorcyclist was killed Sunday when a car turned left in front of him and he was unable to stop in time to avoid a crash, police said.

Officers and medics responded to the scene, in the 4900 block of Evergreen Way, just before 3 p.m. after receiving a report of a serious collision, said Aaron Snell of the Everett police.

The motorcyclist, a 36-year Everett man, was severely injured. He was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center, where he died of his injuries.
