No charges against Kirkland driver who fatally struck cyclist

Snohomish County prosecutors won’t file criminal charges against a driver who fatally struck a 30-year-old cyclist last year.

The Daily Herald says instead Everett police detectives cited the Kirkland man for second-degree negligent driving and wrote him a $10,287 ticket last month.

Trent Graham, a father and bicycle salesman, was killed while riding his bike home from work on Oct. 17, 2012.

Deputy prosecutor Tobin Darrow says an investigation found evidence the driver suffered from a seizure, which likely caused him to lose control of the truck. But there was no indication the driver knew he had a medical condition that caused seizures.

Everett police spokesman says detectives, however, believe there is proof that the man’s driving was negligent and caused Graham’s death.

The ticket issued includes a $5,000 fine as well as court costs and fees.
