SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - John C. Sanderson was riding his motorcycle up to his mother's funeral in Newport. He never made it. A truck pulled out in front of him on US 2, attempting to make a U-turn, and the two vehicles collided. Sanderson was killed. The Spokesman-Review reported that 37-year-old Garry D. Baumgartner of Valleyford has been cited for second-degree negligent driving in the Aug. 24 accident. The State Patrol says the truck's turn occurred so quickly the 59-year-old Sanderson didn't have time to hit his brakes.
