PUYALLUP — A 66-year-old former state Legislature candidate hit while riding his bike late last month died from his injuries Wednesday, Puyallup police said.
Eric Renz was riding a bike on Nov. 24 near the intersection of 4th Street SW and 9th Avenue SW in Puyallup when he was hit and pinned by a driver, police said. He was taken to a Tacoma area hospital.
Renz died Wednesday, the Puyallup police said.
A 19-year-old driver is expected to face vehicular homicide charges in the crash, police said. She is believed to have been driving under the influence of alcohol.
Renz, a Democrat, ran for the 25th Legislative District, Position 2 in 2014. He lost the race to incumbent State Rep. Hans Zeiger.
