Wichita Cyclist Dies After Being Struck By SUV

41-year-old Kevin Keller of Wichita was involved in a bicycle accident with an SUV on June 12th and died of his injuries on July 5th.

The accident occurred in Wichita at 9:18 p.m. on June 12th. A Suzuki SUV was headed west on Central and was in the process of turning north onto Mclean when it hit Keller as he crossed the intersection in the crosswalk (see map).

Keller was taken to Via Christi Regional Medical Center-St. Francis Campus in very serious condition, and died from his injuries nearly one month later.

Investigators determined the SUV driver had the green light at the intersection, and witnesses said Keller ignored the “Don’t Walk” pedestrian traffic signs. The driver of the SUV won’t face charges because Keller was determined to be at fault in the accident.
