I was eating dinner  tonight at my house when I began to hear sirens a few blocks a way.  I checked my phone’s twitter feed and found that the Spokane Fire Dept had posted a tweet that a “Major Incident” had happened close by. When I arrived on the scene,  a crushed upside down motorcycle was in the intersection and paramedics were helping the rider who had been hit by a car. I shot the scene and was about to head home when I spotted these two officers looking at the wreck. I love the body language, which makes the picture far more interesting than the dozens of other accident photos I’ve taken in my career.

Spokane Police Department officers Chris Conrath, left and Micah Prim investigate a car verses motorcycle accident in the intersection of 21st Avenue and Lincoln Street Monday evening. A car driven by a man heading westbound on 21st struck the motorcycle that was headed southbound on Lincoln. The motorcyclist was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
