PARKLAND, Wash. - A motorcyclist struck a pedestrian early Sunday at a Parkland intersection, injuring both of them, the Washington State Patrol reports. Drugs or alcohol were believed to be a factor in the crash.

State troopers and medics responded to the scene, the intersection of Highway 7 and 112th Street South, at about 2:40 a.m. after receiving reports of an accident.

The pedestrian, a 48-year-old Eatonville man, and the motorcyclist, a 26-year-old Spanaway man, were found at the scene with injuries. Both were taken to Good Samaritan Hospital. Their conditions were not immediately available.

The motorcycle, a black 2014 Harley-Davidson, was totaled.

A preliminary investigation found that the motorcycle was heading south on Highway 7 when it plowed into the pedestrian, who was walking across the intersection at 112th Street South.

The motorcyclist faces a possible charge of vehicular assault, the State Patrol reports.

The intersection was closed for about two hours after the crash but has since reopened.
