Everett Man Killed Saturday in Motorcycle Collision North of Enumclaw

Joshua Anderson, 20, was riding with a friend on S.E. 400th Street when he collided with a dump truck.

A 20-year-old Everett man was killed in a motorcycle versus dump truck collision Saturday north of Enumclaw, the King County Sheriff's Office reported.

The man and a friend on a second motorcycle were riding westbound on S.E. 400th Street at about 3:30 p.m. when he collided with a dump truck that was pulling out of a pasture on the 23400 block of S.E. 400th Street.

The truck driver later reported seeing the two motorcyclists but said he thought he had enough time to pull out, Sgt. Cindi West said. One motorcyclist, identified by the King County Medical Examiner's Office as Joshua Anderson subsequently struck the truck and died at the scene.

The other motorcyclist was not involved in the collision and was not hurt.

The cause of the collision remains under investigation though drugs and alcohol are not believed to be involved, West said.

The speedometer was found and Josh was going 42 mph. UNDER the speed limit. I would like to also say, the truck driver saw that he hit Josh and RAN AWAY from the scene and when he drove off, he ran over Josh. If he had any chance in surviving, he ruined it by the hit and run. Josh loved to ride his bike, and loved his family. He was taken from us too soon.

All of these comments are way too premature & disrespectful. NO ONE, except his riding partner who was on his own bike riding close to Josh knows more of the fine details. We have incredible officers serving our various communities. Men and women of HIGH integrity who are in the process of an in depth investigation. We are fortunate to have each of them, working diligently, using their individual expertise. The information they have collected and with precision put it all together, will be able to solve the case with FACTS not with unfair premature, prejudice judgements. It would be best if NO ONE posted anything until the investigative can do their work. Respect them to do a credible job in this SAD and HORRIFIC situation. Post your love for Josh and the fact you will miss him. Bitterness and prejudgement only shows a lack of intelligent thinking and is probably very dishearting for the investigation team, not to mention the greiving parents & family member. A greiving grandmother who will NEVER be the same without him in my life and my son and extended family's lives

Whoever is commenting negatively on this post is selfish and disrespectful to Josh's family. The fact is the Truck driver pulled out in front of him wasn't paying attention and should pay for his actions in prison. Just like if a car hits a pedestrian it does not matter if the pedestrian intentionally jumped in front of the car NO MATTER what the car is in the wrong, so sad!!!! RIP JOSH
