No real details yet. The time of the accident (11:20 PM) is interesting.

It should read rt. 119. It happened north of Connellsville. That is a very busy 4 lane road with cars running around 65mph. There is a pretty big shoulder, but at 11:20PM, that wouldn’t be so good. Lots of cross traffic and there are also a lot of wrecks on that road due to speed and so many cars entering and exiting that road. I used to work down there and drove that road daily for a while. Wonder what happened? Sad.

I know some cyclists down there and was holding my breath when I opened that link. Sure hate hearing about this stuff!

i want to note, before it’s too late, that nowhere is the word “accident” mentioned in the article.

I saw it on the news tonight. Shame. Wonder if the driver would have been driving a car instead, he/she could have avoided the cyclist? One of the things I hate about SUVs is they are so horrible at maneuvering/braking. They just plow ahead with no real chance of avoidance. Really is sad.
