Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 5-Oct-2012
A bicyclist was killed in San Antonio yesterday morning, when he was hit by a pickup truck near Loop 1604.
Retired San Antonio police detective, Larry W. McGee, 59, experienced extreme leg and other injuries, dying at University Hospital an hour after the bicycle accident occurred.
Witnesses passing by attempted to resuscitate McGee until he was transported via AirLife helicopter.
McGee was wearing a helmet at the time of the bicycle accident, officials on the scene said.
According to Bexar County Sheriff, Sgt. E.M. Conger, the driver of the vehicle that hit McGee said the sun was in his eyes, making it difficult for him to see the bicyclist.
The Houston driver was on the way to work with three passengers. No one else was injured in the car accident. No criminal charges have been filed against the driver for his role in McGee’s death.
A recently retired SAPD homicide detective, McGee spent 34 years working with the department.
McGee was noted by friends and family as an experienced cyclist, who road often.
