Cyclist killed in collision with driver on U.S. 2

From staff reports

A cyclist was killed when he was hit early Sunday morning by an alleged drunken driver while riding north of Spokane International Airport on U.S. Highway 2.

Ty Olds, 44, was riding his bicycle on the shoulder of the westbound lane of the highway at Flint Road shortly after 4 a.m. when he was struck by a westbound car driven by Melissa Paul, 27, a Washington State Patrol report said.

Troopers at the scene determined alcohol was a factor in the collision, according to the report, which said Paul was later booked into the Spokane County Jail.
