The video shown on the morning news program clearly shows a mangled bicycle in the road.  Hopefully they will update their reporting with more facts as they become available.

“Due to the fact that Operator #1 was riding a bicycle without lighting or bright reflective clothing, Operator #2 did not see him,” police said in a written statement. “Operator #2 subsequently struck Operator #1 with his vehicle. Operator #1 ultimately succumbed to his injuries.”

what a load of horseshit.  How about “Operator #2 claimed not to see Operator #1, but given Operator #2’s vehicle was found to have working headlights,  Operator #2 was either not paying attention to the road or driving too fast for conditions.”

@salty: I agree. Assuming that the cyclist is to blame shows biased and lazy thinking by the police.

Nobody mentioned Operator #3, who ran over Operator #1. If there’s a car sitting stock still in the middle of the road, the least you can do is slow down to see what’s going on.
