Man Dies in Crash on I-5

WHATCOM COUNTY, Wash. (July 30, 2019) — A Ferndale man died in a crash Thursday afternoon July 25th on southbound Interstate 5 near Portal Way.  

Michael G. Endicott, 50, died when he lost control of his vehicle while trying to make a lane change, said police.  According to reports, the accident occurred at about 3 p.m. Endicott died at the scene.  

“The left lane was occupied by another vehicle, so Endicott swerved back to the right, lost control and his car left the roadway and rolled,” Oliphant said. “Witnesses said it did not appear the cars actually even touched.”

Oliphant said Endicott was wearing a seat belt and impairment was not believed to have been involved.

The crash blocked the right lane of southbound I-5 until 5:30 p.m. We will update this post as soon as more information is available.
