Draper, UT—A Wednesday morning, July 14, 2010 two-vehicle traffic accident left a female cyclist in extremely critical condition, after one of the vehicles veered into a pack of cyclists. The collision occurred around 7 a.m., near 900 E. Highland Drive (14375 South) in Draper, as reported by the Desert News.
Officials reported that a GMC pickup truck was headed westbound on Highland Drive, when the truck drifted into the eastbound lanes, subsequently colliding with a Toyota passenger car, causing one of the vehicles to loose a front tire. The driver of the pickup then lost control and drove into the path of a pack of 10 female cyclists.
Elizabeth Bradley, 29, took the brunt of the collision, which left her seriously injured. Bradley reportedly hit the vehicle head-on. She was airlifted via medical helicopter to the University of Utah Trauma Center where she is listed in “extremely critical condition.” On Thursday, Bradley sadly succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Three other cyclists were also injured. Officials say their injuries were minor, and that they were treated and released at the scene by responding medical professionals.
It is unknown what caused the pickup truck to veer into oncoming traffic, sparking the injurious collision. A full investigation is underway.
