VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

A man riding a bicycle died early Wednesday morning after being hit by a car in Vancouver.

Deputies with the Clark County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene of a vehicle vs. bicycle collision in the 12200 block of Northeast 76th Street at 12:15 a.m.

Before emergency personnel arrived, deputies performed CPR on the bicyclist.

When EMS got to the scene, the bicyclist was pronounced dead.

The sheriff's office's traffic unit said scene evidence along with witness statements indicated a 2012 Toyota Camry was traveling eastbound on Northeast 76th Street when it hit the bicyclist, who was crossing the street at Northeast 122nd Avenue, where there is no marked crosswalk.

The Clark County Medical Examiner is working to identify the bicyclist with fingerprint testing, as the man did not have identification on him. 

Deputies said the 24-year-old Vancouver woman who was the driver of the Camry stayed at the scene, cooperated with investigators and wasn’t injured in the crash.

Detectives with the Clark County Traffic Unit responded and will continue to investigate the crash.

The driver was not arrested nor cited for the crash.
