Bicyclist killed in South Austin

I'm willing to bet the motorist made a right-on-red without first stopping.

A man riding a bicycle was struck and killed by a dump truck this morning near the intersection of Interstate 35 and Ben White Boulevard, police said.

Austin police said the truck had been at a stoplight and was facing north on the Interstate 35 frontage road when he turned east onto the Ben White Boulevard frontage road.

Police said the cyclist was traveling east on the Ben White frontage road and that the truck driver did not see the cyclist.

Authorities describe the victim as a white male in his 40s from Austin.

His identity has not been released, pending notification of his family.

Re: Bicyclist killed in South Austin

Not seeing what is in the road is OK for APD. I wonder if the truck driver did not see a patrol car it would still be OK.
