It's happened again.
Steve Barbour, a long-time cyclist and member of Columbus Outdoor Pursuits, was riding on his way to a COP ride when he was struck by a driver that police suspect of being under the influence. He died last night after the accident put him into a coma. You can get more information at NBC4's website.
Some discussion of this accident and its causes, aftermath, and legal situation are also available at Yay Bikes. Also, there are some folks who knew Steve, who was active in the Columbus cycling community for years, who are talking about him a bit there. Please drop by and give your condolences if you can.
Update: The Dispatch is reporting that the killer's name is Edward S. Miller, 28. The charge against him will be aggravated vehicular assault - aggravated because he was under the influence. They also mention that Barbour was obeying all the rules of the road. Sad that they have to mention that, but it's nice to see them sticking up for him.
People, not speed.
