A 35-year-old cyclist died from injuries sustained in a crash northeast of Boulder on Monday that Colorado State Patrol investigators say likely occurred when he turned left in front of an oncoming vehicle.
Colorado State Patrol Trooper Josh Lewis said the crash at 63rd Street and Jay Road was reported at 9:02 a.m. Monday.
The cyclist, who was from Boulder, was stopped in the left turn lane on westbound Jay at 63rd, Lewis said, while a Subaru driven by a 61-year-old woman was traveling east on Jay.
Lewis said investigators believe the driver had a green light allowing her to enter the intersection when the cyclist — who had a flashing yellow turn signal — attempted to turn left onto 63rd, and was struck by the oncoming Subaru.
The cyclist was transported to Boulder Community Health’s Foothills Hospital, but died at the hospital.
The man’s identity will be publicly released by the Boulder County Coroner’s Office following the notification of relatives.
