    37-year-old Vincent T Englert killed after a motorcycle crash in Bellingham (Bellingham, WA)

    Authorities identified 37-year-old Vincent T Englert, from Blaine, as the man who lost his life following a traffic collision on Thursday evening in Bellingham.

    The fatal motorcycle crash took place on I-5 at about 8:23 p.m. According to the investigation reports, Vincent T Englert was riding his 2003 Honda VTX1800R northbound on I-5 approaching Lakeway Drive when he failed to negotiate a curve in the road and went into the median. After that, the motorcycle crashed into a guardrail, went over a cement barrier and fell onto Lakeway Drive below.

    Englert and his motorcycle fell in between the northbound and southbound lanes of the overpass and struck the wall beneath the bridges before falling on the vehicle below. Nobody else was injured in the collision, though a driver driving on Lakeway Drive was hit by the falling guardrail. A 2018 GMC Canyon on Lakeway Drive at that time was hit by the guardrail, but the 73-year-old Bellingham driver did not receive any serious injuries. Drugs and alcohol were not believed to have contributed to the accident, but officers said that the motorcyclist’s speed and aggressive driving led to the crash.

    According to the eyewitnesses, they saw the bike going at “a high rate of speed” before the collision. Just before 9 p.m., authorities reported that the left lane of northbound I-5 was shut down for a while. By 9:43 p.m., it was reported that the lane reopened. Lakeway Drive was blocked as crews worked at the scene. No further details were provided.

    An investigation continues.
