Swift justice for a cyclist in PA

From The Sentinel

A Walnut Bottom bicyclist was taken to Chambersburg Hospital after he collided with a truck in Southampton Township earlier this week.

State police at Carlisle said David E. Klopp, 33, was riding his bicycle south on Baltimore Road when a 2008 Dodge 1500 passed him just before the intersection with Koser Lane.

After passing Klopp, the driver of the truck, Roger E. Chestnut, 54, of Shippensburg, made an immediate right turn onto Koser Lane, police said.

Klopp was unable to stop his bicycle as the truck turned in front of him, and the bicycle hit a trailer being towed by the truck, police said.

Klopp suffered a minor injury and was taken to Chambersburg Hospital for treatment, police said. He was wearing a hospital. [Probably meant helmet.]

Chestnut was not injured and was charged with careless driving, police said.
