MONROE — A Snohomish man died Wednesday night in a multi-vehicle crash on U.S. 2 where the Washington State Patrol believes alcohol or drugs were involved.

Mark Camp was on a motorcycle heading east on U.S. 2 at 6:18 p.m. when traffic slowed ahead of him near Fern Bluff Road. Another driver in a Lexus RX SUV allegedly rear-ended Camp, throwing him off the motorcycle, hitting another car that was pushed into a van, according to the state patrol.

Camp, 62, wasn’t wearing a U.S. Department of Transportation-compliant helmet and died at the scene, according to the state patrol.

No one else was injured.

The driver who allegedly caused the collision reportedly wasn’t wearing a seat belt. He was booked into Snohomish County Jail for investigation of vehicular homicide.
