Chandler, AZ (June 21, 2019) – A cyclist who was struck in an auto accident earlier this week died on Thursday, June 20th.
Raymon Granillo, 62, was struck by the vehicle from behind while he was riding his bicycle near Ray Road and Cooper Road, just before 5:00 a.m. on June 17th. Authorities say Granillo was wearing a bicycle helmet at the time of the crash but was critically injured.
