SUV Kills St. Paul Bicyclist
A Minneapolis man driving an SUV hit a St. Paul woman riding her bike near Summit and Snelling Avenues in St. Paul on Saturday, reported The Star Tribune.
Virginia Heuerbowar, 51, was hit riding her bike east on Summit Avenue said Pete Panos, a spokesman for St. Paul police.
The unidentified driver, 39, was also heading east on a service road and appears to have hit Heuerbowar when his road merged with hers.
Heuerbowar was taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul where, despite wearing a helmet, she died of severe head injuries seven hours after the crash, reported The St. Paul Pioneer Press.
The driver was not issued a ticket while investigators continue determining exactly how the accident occurred.
The driver maintained he stopped before entering the Summit Avenue intersection.
