A cyclist was killed by a collision with a motor vehicle at the St. Joseph / Elkhart county line on Ash road early this morning. Few details are available so far, but the South Bend Tribune has a preliminary report online: LINK.
Update @ 5:30 PM: The Tribune has posted additional information: LINK (this link was changed on 8/29; the previous Tribune link was no longer valid). Oddly, both the cyclist AND the motorist were traveling south in the northbound lane; the cyclist was hit from behind.
There has been a thread recently in the Bike Michiana Google Group about the need to compile local bicycle accidents involving motor vehicles; work is under way to establish an easy-to-update online database. More about the database will be published soon.
Here’s a map of showing the location of the accident:
