Avery Duclos was the 10-year-old Spanaway boy killed Thursday night when he was hit by a pickup while riding his bike, the Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office reported this morning.

The boy was hit about 6:45 p.m. as he pulled out of a friend’s driveway in the 15500 block of 66th Avenue East, sheriff’s deputies said.

The 64-year-old Spanaway man driving the truck slammed on his brakes but could not avoid Avery, said spokesman Ed Troyer, who described the collision as a tragic accident. There was no evidence the pickup’s driver had been drinking or taking drugs prior to the crash, deputies said.
