Another look at the motorcycle.

A motorcycle rider and his passenger were taken to Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett after a high-speed crash early Monday morning. According to Washington State Patrol Sgt. Keith Leary, a trooper clocked a motorcycle going over 100 miles an hour on I-5 in Everett. The Trooper followed the motorcycle off the I-5 exit ramp at 41st street in Everett. Once at 41st street the motorcyclist took off at a high rate of speed and turned south on South 3rd Street into the Lowell neighborhood of Everett. Leary said the Trooper did not pursue the motorcycle due to it having two people on board but drove south into Lowell and came across where the bike crashed in the 4800 block of South 2nd Street. The driver was a man in his 40s from Snohomish and the woman passenger was in her 20s. Both were wearing helmets and suffered non-life-threatening injuries. As you can see from the photos, the motorcycle narrowly missed a power pole which likely would have left this crash with a far worse outcome.
