A 42-year-old man from Portland was killed when his bicycle and a pickup truck collided on U.S. 70 early Thursday morning.

According to Bart Graves, a spokesman with the Arizona Department of Public Safety, Ian Mouser was riding his bike east on U.S. 70 just outside Safford around 4:20 a.m. when a pickup being driven by a 27-year-old Pima man struck him.

Mouser was pronounced dead at the scene, which was near South Haekel Road at milepost 348.

"It's unlikely criminal charges will be filed, however the investigation is ongoing," Graves said.
