Motorist fatally strikes, backs over elderly bicyclist
Police say a motorist in Ogden struck a 73-year-old woman on a bicycle Saturday, then backed up to see what he hit and ran over her again.
The bicyclist, Marie Gabaldon, died at the scene. The collision happened about 6:15 p.m. Saturday. Gabaldon was riding her bike south on B Avenue at 24th Street. She rode in front of a 30-foot motor home traveling west on 24th, said Ogden police Lt. Scott Conley. The motor home struck her then pulled over to the right.
Witnesses told police the 52-year-old driver then drove in reverse to see what he had hit, Conley said, and the motor home ran over Gabaldon again.
Police did not cite the motor home driver but the accident was still under investigation, Conley said.
