Bicyclist dies in crash while crossing Main Street

LOGAN — A man in his 80’s died Friday morning while crossing Main St. on his bicycle. The crash occurred at 11:15 a.m. near 1475 N. Main.

Logan City Police Capt. Curtis Hooley said the elderly man was riding his bike across the street, going east to west, when he was struck.

“He crossed in front of a truck that was northbound on Main Street, a Ford F-150 pickup, said Hooley. “The truck struck the male and the bicycle. The bicyclist was transported up to Logan Regional, where he was pronounced dead.”

The man’s identity has not been released, pending notification of family. Hooley said both the bicyclist and driver of the truck are from Cache Valley.

There are no crosswalks in the area. Officers believe the man was riding the bike, trying to cross the street.

“That is what it appears to be. It doesn’t appear that there was any impairment on the driver of the pickup. So they are still working through the witnesses that they have, trying to determine what the circumstances were.”

Traffic was partially detoured for over 90-minutes while officers investigated the accident and cleared the scene.
