Breaking News: Two Dead (UPDATE)

Local news reports that a woman driving a pickup truck struck three cyclists, killing two. The crash happened along a popular cycling route west of Tulsa near Sand Springs.

...and the usual assortment of mouth-breathing goons showed up to comment on the story. Sometimes, people are sickening.

Television news reports show that the SUV left the roadway, traveling across the shoulder onto the grass verge. Tire tracks can be seen in the grass. The vehicle hit a stop sign and left the scene. The driver may have had an open container. She is in custody and will be tested for alcohol.


There's an announcement on local mailing lists that tonight's regularly scheduled Wednesday Night Ride will be a Ride of Silence out to the crash scene west of Sand Springs. It will be accompanied by a police escort.

Officially, no names have been released yet.

Ed, that's horrible. Makes me think twice about riding on busy roads.
