Sheriff's Office Recommends Kirkland Man Be Charged in Bicycle Fatality

A truck driven by a 56-year-old Kirkland man allegedly drifted across the center of Evergreen Way last October, striking and killing a 30-year-old Everett bicyclist. The Snohomish County Sheriff's Office is recommending vehicular homicide charges.


Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office detectives are recommending that vehicular homicide charges be filed against a 56-year-old Kirkland man in the death of a 30-year-old bicyclist last October in Everett.

Detectives on Tuesday ended their investigation of the Oct. 17 collision between a pickup truck allegedly driven by the Kirkland man and the bicyclist, identified as Trenton M. Graham of Everett.

The truck driver has not been identified, and Patch typically does not identify suspects unless and until they are charged with a crime.

The collision occurred in the 10600 block of Evergreen Way in Everett. Officers attempted to provide medical attention to the bicyclist, but he died at the scene.

A press release by the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office at the time said preliminary information indicated the pickup was travelling southbound on Evergreen Way when it drifted left across the center turn channel and three lanes of northbound Evergreen Way.  The pickup struck the curb, the bicyclist and a power pole.

An update on the press release Tuesday said the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office will now review the case and decide if charges are appropriate.

Aaron Snell, public information officer for the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office, said drugs and/or alcohol were not a factor in the collision.
