When driving on the roadway, most drivers are cautiously making sure that they are abiding by the rules of traffic to avoid hitting other vehicles. While this is very important, it is not only motor vehicles that drivers must look out for, but also bicyclists and pedestrians that may be traveling on the shoulder of the road and are much more difficult to see.

A recent tragedy in McPherson, Kansas is a reminder of how important it is to pay attention while on the road. According to police reports, the bicycle accident occurred Sunday afternoon when a McPherson College student was riding his bike and was struck by a 17-year-old high school student. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene when emergency crews arrived. The driver is a student at McPherson High School.

McPherson College President Michael Schneider stated that the victim was an “outstanding member on campus” and the campus is devastated to hear of the horrific accident.

The bicyclist was a member of the college tennis team and also had a job in the sport office. Police are continuing to investigate the accident at this time. The college is offering counseling services to all those in need during this difficult time.
