Gwen Inglis, a national cycling champion, was training on familiar roads when a driver hit and killed her after drifting into the bike lane, Lakewood (Colo.) Police said.
Inglis was riding with her husband, Mike, in the Denver suburb around 10 a.m. on Sunday when the Nissan sedan driven by Ryan Montoya, 29, veered into the lane. He remained at the scene.
Inglis, 47, was taken to the hospital, where she died of her injuries.
Inglis is the reigning 2019 U.S. road race champion in the 45-49 age group and her husband won the national title in the 50-and-over category the same year.

Newsweek said Montoya had History of Driving-Related Incidents.

There it is. A lot of drinking and driving in this crowd.
"...Gwen Inglis, 2019 U.S. Cycling Road Race Champion..."
“A lot of drinking and driving in this crowd.”
I hear that kind of obnoxious behavior is very popular in the dangerous idiot community.
Is it just me, or do you see the evil cascading off that vile criminal?
Very, very sad.
See ya at the bill signing! /W
Like the I-70 truck driver that killed a bunch of people… Good at passing blame…
Cycling is inherently dangerous, even given the likely fault of the motorist in this instance. They oftentimes will veer into the road path and cause adjustments to be made by motorists usually into the opposite traffice lane. Of course, the liberals in Colorado are already using this tragedy to advocate for dedicated bike infrastructure. They never stop.
Its sad, both bikers and motorists cuause traffic problems and accidents because of it. If cars veer into other lanes motorists have died, if they hit a cyclist, they are injured or can die. Around me bicyclsts do not understand there are laws and road rules for them as well.
"...They oftentimes will veer into the road path and cause adjustments to be made by motorists usually into the opposite traffice lane..."
Bicycle lane? What did the leftist expect when they put in a lane just for slow moving bicycles within a couple feet of fast moving cars and 10 ton vehicles, traveling 2-5 times fast than these slow moving vulnerable bicycles?
It’s a recipe for brutal death and disaster and noways bicycles going under the wheels is a common occurrence.
Roads, bikes and cars are not a good mix under any conditions.
If she was training at home how did she get hit by a car?
not sure what happened here, but
Ive seen situations where a road-race bicycle would not fit parallel
the road with just plain cars and the biker-Karens were not happy
I am a licensed professional engineer, and I will NEVER affix my seal on a street design with a bike lane that has no physical barrier separating the bikes from the vehicular traffic -- for exactly the reasons you've stated there.
She was riding a bike in a remote area. There was a separate lane for bikes. The drunk guy veered way far over from the road and onto the separate bike lane. The bike lane was several feet away from the car lane. Colorado is a very large geographical area. There are sections of Co. which are very unpopulated. Such was the case with where the accident occurred. She was not in her house. She was near her house, on a bike lane which was separate from a car lane. Several miles outside of the Denver city limits. Several miles? Maybe about 12 miles.
In the old day grandpa would open the door and hit stray dogs that were chasing him in the road. Every time i see lances folks hindering traffic because they cant train any other way. I think of grandpa. Most dogs never chased him twice. Their families did not have to endure the dog being hit by traffic. These are the unspanked generation.
