ELBE, Wash. (AP) - A 70-year-old man riding a motorcycle died when he attempted to pass an SUV, hit the vehicle and crashed near Elbe, Wash., in Pierce County.

The State Patrol says Harold G. Zoll was killed in Saturday afternoon's accident.

Troopers say Zoll was pronounced dead after the crash of his 2005 Honda ST1300 motorcycle on Highway 7, a twisting, two-lane highway. The driver of the Toyota 4Runner, a 19-year-old Kent, Wash., woman, was not injured.
