Fatal Bicycle Accident in Sumner Involving Dump Truck

Valley Regional Fire Authority reported today that a 22-year-old man was killed this morning in a fatal pedestrian accident with a dump truck in Sumner after he fell from his bicycle. The bicyclist died at the scene from his injuries.

Shortly before 7:30 am, the man and a friend were riding bicycles westbound in the 14200 block of Eighth Street East. The bicyclist hit a patch of grass on the gravel shoulder. He then lost control of his bike and fell onto the roadway, into the path of the dump truck that was hauling gravel. Though the man was wearing a helmet, his injuries were fatal. The second bicyclist, who was riding in front of him, was not injured.

No information about the case has been released by the Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office.
