Bremerton, WA (January 22, 2022)- A 62-year-old Poulsbo man was found lying dead in Bremerton after being struck and killed on Friday afternoon while riding his bicycle on the shoulder of Central Valley Road, Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office said.
Deputies arrived and tried to resuscitate him to no avail.
