A bicyclist and motorcyclist who died Saturday in a crash in the Millwood area were identified Monday as James Wilson, 46, and Jerrel I. Bailey-O’Neal, 22.

Wilson was riding his bicycle west on Buckeye Avenue in Spokane Valley when he stopped at a stop sign at North Dick Road between 6:30 p.m. and 7 p.m., then collided with Bailey-O’Neal’s motorcycle in the intersection, according to the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office.

Bailey-O’Neal was riding north on Dick Road and did not have a stop sign, authorities say. Witnesses said he was traveling at a high rate of speed.

The men were identified today after autopsies by the Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office.

It is not yet known if drugs, alcohol or speed were factors, but authorities said neighbors in the area had complained about a speeding motorcyclist.
