A 26-year-old man from Snohomish died at the scene of the collision with a pickup truck on Highway 92 at the intersection of 127th Drive NE.
According to Washington State troopers, the 62-year-old Snohomish man who drove the pickup and his passenger were not injured. Trooper Keith Leary said the pickup driver was making an improper left turn onto Highway 92 when the collision occurred.
Leary said he believes the sunny summer weather and high gas prices are leading more people to drive motorcycles and that both motorcycle riders and car drivers need to be extra careful.
“If somebody does do something wrong, they have to be able to react to that,” Leary said. “Our main message is we have to stay focused on our driving 100 percent of the time.”
