Bicyclist struck, killed in a south Auburn crosswalk

A motorist struck and killed a bicyclist in a crosswalk Saturday afternoon, according to Auburn Police.

A car hit the Auburn cyclist as he was riding in a marked crosswalk on Auburn Way South and Fir Street Southeast. The man, who was identified as Constantin Dragomir, 57, died from injuries on the way to Harborview Medical Center.

The driver remained on scene and told police he didn’t see the bicyclist in the marked crosswalk because he was blocked by cars in the next lane, according to police.

Police said driver impairment was not the cause of the crash.

The accident remains under investigation.
