Everett, Wash. – Detectives have confirmed that the injured bicyclist involved in last night’s collision on 128th St SW is a 33 year-old Lynnwood man.  He was transported to Providence Regional Medical Center (not Harborview, as previously reported) and is expected to survive his injuries.  Initial witness reports and evidence confirm that the bicycle rider crossed the busy 5-lane road from north to south on his bike where there was no crossing or intersection.  Although the investigation is not complete, detectives do not anticipate any arrests in this case.
