Auburn Man Killed in Crash That Shut Down Three Lanes of I-5 in Fife

According to The News Tribune, an Auburn man was killed Saturday morning when he lost control of his motorcycle and was hit by a truck on I-5 in Fife.

It is not clear as to what caused the crash that killed the 42-year-old man.

Witnesses did not report seeing signs of erratic driving before the collision in the northbound lanes of I-5, Washington State Patrol reported.  Neither drugs nor alcohol were a factor in the accident.

Troopers closed down the three center lanes of I-5 in Fife to investigate the 11:10 a.m. crash.  It led to a 9-mile backup that took about three hours to clear.  The University of Washington football team and the Seattle Sounders soccer team both had 1 p.m. kickoffs in Seattle on Saturday.

The 42-year-old man was riding a 2007 Harley-Davidson motorcycle.  He reportedly crossed a line of the highway before he was hit by a tractor-trailer drive by a 53-year-old man.
