The driver, 57-year-old Debra G. Peterson, was booked into Whatcom County Jail Sunday on investigation of hit and run.
The Bellingham Herald said Steven Waterman, 38, and Daniel McKay, 51, were riding along Kendall Road Saturday about 8:15 p.m. when they were hit by a 1994 Ford Escort.
Waterman, from the Maple Falls area, died at the scene. McKay, also from the Maple Falls area, was taken to St. Joseph Medical Center for treatment.
The patrol said Peterson stopped and checked on the bicyclists but then left the scene. She was later arrested.
