Bicyclist killed in Everett when struck by pickup

A bicyclist died Wednesday night in Everett after a pickup veered into opposing traffic and hit a power pole, according to the Everett Police Department.

At about 7:15 p.m., the southbound driver crossed a center line and three lanes of traffic on the 10600 block of Evergreen Way before hitting the bicyclist, according to department spokesman Aaron Snell. He said the bicyclist, who officials believe was a 30-year-old Tacoma man, died at the scene.

What prompted the pickup to suddenly careen into opposing traffic is still under investigation, Snell said. The driver was taken with non-life-threatening injuries to Providence Regional Medical Center’s Colby Campus in Everett.
