According to a report in the HearldNet of Everett, Weber was riding his motorcycle northbound on Interstate 5 around 1:30pm when a construction truck pulled from the right-hand shoulder in front of him. Weber, was unable to avoid the accident and crashed his 1983 Yamaha motorcycle into the back of the pickup truck, suffering life-threatening injuries.
Weber was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle where he died later that evening.
The driver of the truck was uninjured. He may be cited because it is the duty of a driver entering a highway to yield the right-of-way to all vehicles lawfully approaching on the highway.
People who knew Weber said that if anyone could have avoided the motorcycle accident, Weber would have been able to. Weber was described as a “local legend” in the off-motorcycle riding community because he was so intense.
