UPDATE: Police release the identity of the cyclist killed in Main St. crash

LOGAN — Police have released the identity of the bicyclist who died Friday morning after being hit by a truck. The crash occurred at 11:15 a.m. near 1475 N. Main in Logan.

Police Capt. Curtis Hooley said Elrod T. Woodbury was riding his bike across the street, going east to west, when he was hit by a Ford F-150 pickup that was heading northbound. The 83-year-old North Logan man was unconscious when emergency crews arrived on the scene. He was transported by ambulance to Logan Regional Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

There are no crosswalks in the area. Woodbury’s death is believed to have been accidental but an investigation is still ongoing.

Police officers report there was no impairment. They believe Woodbury was riding his bike, trying to cross the street, and did not see the approaching truck.

“From what witnesses tell us, it appears that he did cross over in front of the pickup,” explained Hooley.

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