Bicyclist dies after being struck Saturday
A well-known Upper Arlington bicyclist died early this morning of injuries he received when a pickup truck struck him on Saturday.
Steven Barbour, 58, was riding west on Cemetery Road in Hilliard about 6 a.m. when the truck hit him, said Hilliard Police Lt. Charles Scalf. The truck was also going west and struck Barbour from behind.
Police arrested the truck’s driver, Edward S. Miller, 28, on a charge of aggravated vehicular assault. That charge likely will change as a result of Barbour’s death, Scalf said.
Scalf said Miller took a breath-analysis test. He would not release the results but said alcohol played a role in the crash.
Barbour was scheduled to lead an organized ride on Saturday in Union County and was traveling there when he was hit, said Gail Falkinburg, 68, of the East Side, a longtime friend. He often led rides and often rode his bike long distances to get to those rides, she said. Source: dispatch.com
