    Collision with UPS delivery truck kills La. cyclist - Lubbock Avalanche Journal

    About 3:15 p.m., Michael H. Hutchings, 56, of Bossier City, La., was riding a bicycle eastbound on the shoulder of State Highway 217 east of Farm-to-Market Road 1541 as an eastbound UPS delivery truck, driven by Albert Ray Smith of Amarillo, passed him on the roadway, authorities said.

    At that time, Hutchings drifted toward the shoulder stripe, causing the truck’s side-view mirror to hit Hutchings’ head as it passed him, troopers said.
