Local reporting from the Capital Gazette
The accident occurred .... A preliminary investigation indicates that Patricia Cunningham, 50, ... was riding a bicycle when it collided with a 2011 Honda Odyssey, Anne Arundel County police spokesman Justin Mulcahy said.
Meanwhile the reporting from the more bike friendly DC region the Washington Post
As the popular athlete and Annapolis High School track coach neared the shaded top of that hill on her bicycle Wednesday evening, she was hit from behind by a Honda van whose driver was eager to get around the lone cyclist.
And then from another cyclist
A Van traveling possibly 40 or so mph saw the female cyclist and decided to pass her as she was going over the hill. As the van went to pass on the other side of the road a vehicle coming the other way appeared. The Van immediately swerved right RIDING OVER the cyclist.
B' Spokes: I am getting rather annoyed with too many of the local cycling crash stories being stated as the bike hit the car when it is rather apparent that it was the other way around.
