Man dies in ATV crash in Whatcom County

Metro

DEMING, Wash. – The Washington State Patrol says a man was found dead after his all-terrain vehicle crashed over a 20-foot embankment near Deming.

The body of 45-year-old Scott Allen Monaghan was found Monday morning at the bottom of a steep ditch off a gravel road located north of Mount Baker Highway.

Troopers believe Monaghan took a corner too fast on his four-wheeler, struck a tree stump, and tumbled to the bottom of the ditch.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.
