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.
