A 33-year-old Sedro-Woolley man was identified as the victim of a fatal chain-reaction crash Tuesday on southbound Interstate 5 south of Mount Vernon, the Skagit County Coroner’s Office said Thursday.

Curtis Miller died when he was rear-ended by a box truck Tuesday morning and shoved into a line of five other cars as traffic slowed in a construction zone near Conway, according to reports from the Coroner’s office and the Washington State Patrol.

Cause and manner of death was pending, the Coroner’s Office said on its website.

Two other drivers were injured in the crash, and the state patrol is seeking witnesses.
