A single motorcycle accident can impact an entire community. I’ve seen entire communities struggle with the loss of an accident victim. Some accidents leave a remarkable impact.
Earlier this week, a local legend was killed in an I-5 motorcycle accident. Scott Weber, 51, was known in his community as a competitive off-road motorcyclist who enjoyed challenging rides.
Sadly, he was killed Wednesday when a Dodge pickup truck unexpectedly pulled in front of him. Having little time to react, he crashed into the back of the truck. Officials rushed him to Harborview Medical Center, where he died later that day.
The incident happened at about 1:30 p.m. near Smokey Point.
On Thursday, Weber’s Husqvarna dirt bike was placed on display in Tasky’s Metric Cycle to honor his legacy. We are very sorry to hear of this local loss. He will certainly be missed by the many who knew him.
