Kent man dies in motorcycle crash on Highway 167

Heading southbound, just north of South 212th Street

A 28-year-old Kent man died early Thursday along southbound Highway 167 after his motorcycle smashed into the rear of an attenuator truck, which was stopped blocking lane one of three setting signage with all lights activated and an arrowboard directing traffic to the left.

The motorcycle and rear of the truck caught fire after the 12:18 a.m. collision just north of South 212th Street in Kent, according to the Washington State Patrol. The motorcyclist ended up in lane two and was struck by a third vehicle.

Dylan A. Hague, who was on a 2017 MV Agusta Brutale 800, died at the scene, according to the State Patrol. Nobody else was injured.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation. No drugs or alcohol were involved.

“In speaking with one of the troopers on scene, preliminary information indicates that it was at normal freeway speeds,” Trooper Rick Johnson said in an email about how fast the motorcyclist was going. “This will be confirmed when the detectives finish their workup from the data collected with the measuring instruments.”

The State Patrol closed the highway for four hours and six minutes.
