The accident occurred on the northbound lanes of the interstate near State Route 18 shortly after 2:00 p.m.
Authorities say the man was riding a 2009 Honda CBR600 north and taking the SR-18 HOV lane when he started to experience “speed wobble.” While moving right to another lane, the rider lost control of his bike and struck the rear of a 2016 Ram 1500.
The victim was transported to Harboview Medical Center where he later died, confirmed the Washington State Patrol. He was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.
The 22-year-old driver of the Ram 1500 was not injured.
An investigation into the cause of the crash remained underway as of Saturday.
