I just heard this news from Ammon Skidmore and it hit me like a ton of bricks: LAB Board Member and cycling safety instructor Bruce Rosar was killed in an auto collision while cycling in Apex, North Carolina.
Bruce was well known for lecturing cyclists to ride safely and legally and was a stickler to the rules of the road. The local police report, however, that Bruce inexplicably turned left across the path of a Honda. The report is apparently based solely on the statement of the Honda’s driver. The other witness to the crash — Bruce — is unable to give his statement.
