SNOHOMISH — Authorities have identified a motorcyclist killed Friday after colliding with a truck whose driver was arrested for investigation of vehicular homicide.
Brandon J. Elias, 31, of Snohomish was riding a motorcycle around 3:30 a.m. when he was involved in a head-on crash with a truck in the 2900 block of Newberg Road, east of Lake Stevens.
Detectives with the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office Collision Investigation Unit believe a 44-year-old man driving the truck was headed southbound when he passed another vehicle and collided with the motorcycle, which was northbound.
Elias died at the scene. The driver of the truck was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of vehicular homicide and driving under the influence. He was released Monday after posting $100,000 bond.
