Coroner identifies bicyclist killed in collision with big rig

A bicyclist who died Tuesday in a collision with a big-rig truck has been identified by the Sacramento County Coroner's Office as 35-year-old Corey Bachman.

Bachman's city of residence was not identified.

He died after colliding with the back of a big rig on Franklin Boulevard at 52nd Avenue in south Sacramento County.

California Highway Patrol spokesman Officer Michael Bradley said the crash occurred about 3:10 p.m. as a big-rig truck was making a right turn from southbound Franklin Boulevard onto westbound 52nd Avenue. He said the bicyclist, also traveling southbound on Franklin, collided with the trailer portion of the truck and was run over by the rear axle of big rig.

Bachman was pronounced dead at the scene.

The big-rig driver stopped, and neither alcohol nor drugs appear to have been factors in the collision, Bradley said.
