Coroner identifies local man who died in bike accident near Boise Military Reserve

The Ada County Coroner’s Office identified a man who recently died while biking near the Military Reserve in Boise’s East End.

The Coroner’s Office listed the cause of death as vertebral fractures with a spinal cord injury and the manner of death as an accident.

There are no pending charges, Williams said.
