A 74-year-old bicyclist who died Wednesday after being struck by a dump truck on Kapowsin Highway near Graham has been identified as John Chambers.
Officials said Chambers, who lived in a nearby group home, often was seen riding his bike in the area.
He was riding a mountain bike east on the highway when a dump truck traveling in the same direction hit him just before noon in the 14100 block.
Emergency personnel performed CPR, but Chambers was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver stopped after the accident and cooperated with investigators, Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said.
It was unclear what caused the accident.
