A 31-year-old Bothell man died on I-5 on Friday morning when a pair of tires came loose off a truck, crossed the freeway and collided with the van he was riding in.
The accident happened about 10:40 a.m. in Tukwila, as John Ellis rode in the front passenger seat of a van being driven by another Bothell resident, according to the Washington State Patrol.
Two tires came off the left side of a northbound truck and trailer. The tires crossed the freeway and struck the front passenger side. Ellis died at the scene, the State Patrol said.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
