Bicyclist hit by truck and killed at E. Yale Ave. and S. Ursula St. 09/10/14

09/10/14 Aurora, CO – Breaking News: 10:23PM – A bicycle ride turned tragic this evening when a woman was struck by a pick-up truck at the intersection on S. Ursula St. and E. Yale Ave. at the entrance to the Dam East subdivision.  The accident occurred around 6:40PM this evening.  According to Aurora Police a man and woman were riding together south on a bike path that intersects Yale at S. Ursula St.  The pair were crossing Yale with the right-of-way in a signal-controlled crosswalk when a pickup truck traveling west on Yale struck the woman bicyclist.  APD says witnesses state that the female driver of the pickup ran the red light which gave the bicyclists the right-of-way in the crosswalk, striking the woman bike rider.  At least two other drivers flashed their lights in an effort to warn the bicyclists of the impending crash but it was too late.  The woman who was struck was transported to a local hospital where she died.  Aurora Police Victim Advocates were called both to the scene and the hospital.  The female driver of the pickup remained at the scene and was cooperative with police.  Aurora Police are deciding if and how the driver will be charged.  Yale just re-opened as of this writing. The accident remains under investigation at this time.  Shane Anthony reporting AuroraNews1.com
