An Austin bicyclist died after being involved with a vehicle collision in Austin Tuesday afternoon. 28-year-old Morgan Marold was on a 40-mile bike ride in western Travis County with other bicyclists when the accident occurred. According to statesman.com, Marold got a flat tire and lost control of her bike, which caused her to enter into traffic. A truck with an attached trailer swerved in an attempt to avoid Marold, but the trailer struck her. She was taken to a local hospital and died of her injuries. The driver, who stayed on the scene, was not given a citation; it is unclear whether an further investigation will take place.
