Man arrested following death of bicyclist on Lummi Reservation

The Associated Press

LUMMI ISLAND — A bicyclist has died in a traffic accident on the Lummi Indian Reservation near Bellingham, and a man has been arrested for investigation of suspicion of vehicular homicide.

Washington State Patrol investigators say the man on the bicycle was not carrying identification, and they're hoping an autopsy will determine his identity.

Trooper Kirk H. Rudeen says the man died at the scene after being struck from behind Saturday night. Rudeen says the man was riding on the shoulder of the road.

The driver of the car, 23-year-old Kyle Johnson of Ferndale, was arrested for investigation of vehicular homicide, and his 1993 Subaru Legacy has been impounded. Rudeen says alcohol does not appear to be a factor, but drug tests are pending.
