SNOHOMISH -- A 29-year-old* man was killed Saturday after he lost control of his motorcycle along a winding rural road east of Snohomish.
The accident happened about 8:30 p.m. in the 12500 block of Old Snohomish-Monroe Road.
The man reportedly lost control of his motorcycle and struck a concrete barrier, Snohomish County sheriff's Lt. Steve Dittoe said Sunday. Firefighters attempted to revive the man, but he died at the scene.
