Bicyclist Killed In Truckee Crash Identified

Posted: Updated:

The Truckee Police Department is investigating a fatal accident Saturday afternoon.

Police say it happened around 3 p.m. on the Central Truckee Roundabout, near McIver Crossing.

Police say a bicyclist was struck by a vehicle while riding in the roundabout. When police and fire crews arrived on scene, they found several citizens performing first aid on the bicyclist, 45-year-old Robert Koechlin, Jr. of Los Gatos, California. He was then taken to Tahoe Forest Hospital and was pronounced dead there.

At this time, alcohol or drugs do not appear to be a factor in the collision. McIver and the area around the roundabout were closed for several hours as crews investigated and cleaned up the accident.

Police say they would like to interview anyone who saw the accident happen. If you have any information, you're being asked to call Sgt. Womack with the Truckee Police Department at (530) 550-2335.
