Bend Police have not released the name of a 16 year Bend boy who was killed after being hit by a truck while riding his bicycle last night around 7 o'clock. Police say he was riding with his friend on Reed Market Road, near Pettigrew Road when a pickup truck and trailer struck him. Sgt. Dan Ritchie with the Bend Police Department has more details: “The male juvenile long with another male juvenile were riding their bicycles traveling east on Reed Market on the north side of the road. A vehicle traveling west on Reed Market, pulling a utility trailer, applied his brakes. The vehicle in front of him was slowing down to make a turn on to Pettigrew. That vehicle lost control and impacted a rock fence, crashing into the 16 year old juvenile.” The 16 year old cyclist was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.  His friend says he just barely escaped getting hit too.  Police are still investigating the accident today.
