A 32-year-old Spokane bicyclist has died from injuries suffered in a collision in October at Fourth Avenue and Lincoln Street.

Matthew R. Hardie died on Dec. 14 from complications stemming from head injuries in the collision on Oct. 4, according to the Spokane County Medical Examiner’s office.

He was headed north on Lincoln on his way to work when he collided with a vehicle that was proceeding through the intersection, according to an acquaintance.

It was the third bicycle fatality this year in Spokane and the fourth in the region after a Spokane to Sandpoint relay support rider was killed on Aug. 14 near Blanchard in North Idaho.
