CBS2: Cyclist Killed after “Running Into” Car

(editor's note: This story has been updated with the text of the police report here.)

CBS 2 news reported earlier today that a cyclist was struck and killed after a crash with a 1989 Honda Civic that was traveling in the same lane as him.  However, despite the completely unlikely possibility that the cyclist raced up behind the moving car and slammed into him, CBS 2 seems to imply that is exactly what happened.  Emphasis dded by me:

A bicyclist was killed in a collision with a car in Lancaster, authorities said Wednesday.

DanTran, 19, of Lancaster, died at a hospital following the crash, whichoccurred about 10:55 p.m. Tuesday at 30th Street West and Avenue L-6,sheriff's Lt. Stefanie Fredericks of the Lancaster Station said.

Tranwas riding his bike south on 30th Street West when he collided with a1989 Honda Civic that also was traveling southbound, Fredericks said.

The man driving the Honda, 38-year-old Renal Fuller of Lancaster, was interviewed but was not arrested.

The family and friends of Dan Tran have my deepest sympathies and doubtless those of the entire bike community.
