Washington State Patrol (WSP) troopers say high speed was the primary cause of a fatal car crash on August 2 that resulted in the death of a 30-year-old Blaine man, Kyle Wayne Thompson.
The accident took place around 6:20 p.m. at 4753 Noon Road, just a few miles north of Bellingham city limits, according to a report from WSP.
Thompson’s 1999 GMC Sierra struck a fence, drove into a ditch and rolled multiple times after he crossed into the northbound lane and overcorrected while turning back into the southbound lane.
He was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle, WSP reports. He died on the scene.
