AUSTIN (KXAN) – Outside Magazine is reporting that a cyclist who died after being struck in a chain reaction crash near Lake Travis Saturday morning was one of their contributors.
The magazine says Andrew Tilin, 52, was riding his bicycle in a group ride on Ranch to Market 620 near Marshall Ford Road when his bicycle had a flat tire and he pulled off the road to fix it.
The Texas Department of Public Safety says a driver in a 1999 Ford F-150 was going southbound on RM 620 around 9 a.m. when they hydroplaned and crossed into oncoming traffic. The Ford F-150 then collided with a 2007 Toyota Tundra that was headed northbound on RM 620.
The collision caused the F-150 to slam into Tilin who was changing the flat on his tire. Tilin was taken to the hospital where he later died.
They said the driver of one of the vehicle’s, a woman in her 20s, suffered non life-threatening injuries.
