My sympathy goes out to the family of Larry McQuien, vice president for business ventures with Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, who died Saturday after being hit by a vehicle while on a bicycle ride.
McQuien, 55, of Aledo was pronounced dead about 11:30 a.m. on the Interstate 20 service road between Ranch House Road and Farm Road 5, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner’s Web site.
A Chevy Cobalt driven by Casey Brieghann Tyson, 20, of Early “veered into” McQuien as both traveled west on the service road at mile marker 417 at 10:59 a.m., according to a Texas Department of Public Safety statement.T
Trooper Darin Woodson, who investigated the accident, said Monday that it was unclear why the car veered into McQuien. The investigation was continuing, and troopers planned to speak to Tyson again, he said.”When we were talking to her, she was pretty shaken up,” Woodson said. No charges had been filed as of Monday morning.
In July 2008, a Weatherford man was hit and killed along the same I-20 access road near Willow Park.Thomas Hollrith Jr., 46, was riding along the north service road between Ranch House and Mikus roads when he was hit by a 2007 Chevrolet pickup, said trooper Simon De La Cruz with the Department of Public Safety office in Weatherford.Both Hollrith and the truck were westbound on the service road shortly before sunset. The DPS said the driver did not see Hollrith because the sun was in his eyes.
