Five Bicyclists Killed by a Pickup Truck in Cooper Township
Multiple people died Tuesday night after a pickup truck ran into a group of bicyclists north of Kalamazoo. At least nine bicyclists were involved in this horrific accident which killed five and injured four.
In the half hour before the bicyclists were struck, law enforcement in three jurisdictions received calls about a blue pickup truck driving erratically.
At 6:36 p.m., before officers could track down the truck, a blue Chevrolet pickup headed north on North Westnedge Avenue near G Avenue slammed into the group of nine riders as they climbed a hill near Kalamazoo County's Markin Glen Park.
The truck became disabled after striking the bicyclists, and when police arrived, they found a man they believed to be the driver not far away on foot. Here's more from the Lansing State Journal.
