10TV reported over the weekend that Jeffrey Stevenson, the cyclist who was struck by a motorist in the early morning hours of last Friday on Sawmill Road, has died from his injuries.
Stevenson was a sophomore at Columbus College of Art and Design, and had recently had some of his work featured at the Society of Illustrators in New York City. He was remembered by his friends as being an achiever who loved to take on challenges.
Police have few leads on the case at this point. The initial call came in around 5:00 AM when motorists saw Stevenson lying near the corner of Sawmill and Bright Roads, and his bicycle literally in pieces all over the road and grass at that point.
Friends of the deceased asked the driver to come forth and accept responsibility for his actions.
NBC4 had a very touching piece on Stevenson and his friends' memories of him.
Here's the video that his friends put together about him mentioned on the NBC video.
We'll keep you updated on this case as we hear more.
People, not speed.
