A 74-year-old bicyclist was hit and killed riding his bike Wednesday morning on Tucson’s eastside.
The crash occurred around 8:30 a.m. at the intersection of Craycroft Road and 22nd Street.
According to a Tucson Police Department press release, John Venneman, 74, was riding north on Craycroft Road and rode through the intersection when north and southbound traffic had a red light.
Police say drivers in two of the eastbound 22nd Street lanes of traffic spotted the cyclist riding in the crosswalk against the light, but a driver in the lane closest to the median did not see Venneman and struck him.
Venneman was taken to the hospital where he died.
