An attempted traffic stop in Spokane Valley turned fatal when a motorcyclist fled from police and crashed early Tuesday near Mansfield Avenue and Pines Road, the Washington State Patrol said in a news release.

A trooper attempted to pull over the motorcyclist, Chase P. Eddy, 28, of Ephrata, who was traveling north on Pines approaching the Mansfield intersection. Eddy ran through a red light at the intersection, WSP said. A Honda Fit was goingd through the intersection at the same time and struck Eddy’s Yamaha motorcycle, throwing him from the bike.

Although Eddy was wearing a helmet, he was pronounced dead at the scene just past midnight, WSP said.

A motorcycle crash in the Valley on Monday left a man with severe injuries .
