A fatal accident occurred last Saturday afternoon when a Holden man perished in a motorcycle accident.
Missouri State High patrol Reports show that a southbound 1993 Chevrolet truck, driven by 43-year-old Christopher V. Daniel of Lone Jack, attempted to make a left turn at Route W, south of NW 450 at 4:37 p.m. and failed to yield to a northbound 2005 Harley Davidson driven by 23-year-old Eric M. Thomason and struck the motorcycle head-on.
Thomason was flown to Centerpoint Hospital by Life Flight and was later pronounced dead at approximately 8:45 p.m.
Thomason was a 2017 graduate of Holden High School.
A track and cross country athlete at HHS, Thomason was described by a classmate as “a great guy, loved by all.”
