Riding a bike in Columbus can be an enjoyable and healthy form of transportation. However, bicyclists are too often at risk when drivers fail to proceed with due caution on Ohio roadways. With that concern in mind, Columbus residents may be saddened to hear of a 20-year-old man who was recently struck by a pickup truck and killed while riding his bike alongside Interstate 270. Police and paramedics arrived at the scene of the fatal accident at about 5 in the morning. The bicyclist was transported to Grant Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 5:48 a.m. The 25-year-old driver of the pickup was interviewed at the scene, and police ruled out alcohol, weather and excessive speed as factors that might have led to the accident. According to the Franklin County sheriff's office, the part of the interstate where the incident occurred was not lit, and the deceased was wearing dark clothing. However, the accident is still under investigation.
