This one in from Vance.

The bicyclist hit by a motorist on Woodlands Village Boulevard Thursday afternoon has died.

According to information from the Flagstaff Police Department, David Cornelius, 58, died Sunday night at Flagstaff Medical Center.
On Thursday at about 4:30 p.m., officers were called to the intersection of West University Drive and Woodlands Village Boulevard on a report of a vehicle and a bicyclist crash.

Officers arrived to find the cyclist, Cornelius, in critical condition. He was taken to Flagstaff Medical Center with major head injuries.

The investigation, so far, has determined that Cornelius was eastbound on University Drive. The driver was heading westbound and preparing to turn left onto Woodlands Village Boulevard. The two collided in the intersection during a green light. Cornelius was not wearing a helmet.

Sgt. James Jackson of the police department said no tickets have been issued in the case until the investigation is complete.

I used to live and work right near that intersection (see it on google maps). Dangerous as hell.

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. This is f’ed up man, i almost was hit on campus yesterday. We cannot trust drivers today. they are always too busy with coffee, texting, talking, make-up(that’s who almost hit me). We, as cyclist, need to be more aware because we can’t trust anyone but ourselves. wear a helmet, that’s the last of my safety speech.

  2. …nothing but heartbreak in these stories…

    …& art…not that it’s really any worse because he was who he was & any life is special but, damn…you read about jure robic, such an amazing guy, a cyclist who accomplished so much, with so many miles under his wheels in truly adverse conditions & the sense of loss just runs so deep…
