A 22-year-old man from Olympia, Shane Crowell, was killed in Seattle after “attempting motorcycle stunts” near Qwest and Safeco Fields. The Washington State Patrol said the man was attempting a stunt on the Interstate 90 on-ramp on Fourth Avenue South when he lost control and was thrown off his motorcycle and over a guard rail, falling to his death.
The Washington State Patrol Chief, John Batiste, said “I’m outraged because these deaths were completely unnecessary. I’m heartbroken because these were decent young men who died of what can only be called stupid, youthful mistakes.”
The other motorcycle accident occurred on State Route 522 east of State Route 9. In that accident, a Monroe man, Walter Barron, age 22, was attempting stunts when he lost control and hit a guard rail.
