The 81-year-old bicyclist who was killed in an accident with a semi on US-10 has been identified.

The Mason County Sheriff says Richard Swiger, from Scottville, died in the collision just after noon Thursday in Amber Township, west of Dennis Road.

Deputies say Swiger was riding a three-wheeled bike west on the paved shoulder of the road when he tried to go over a curb.
