A Waterloo, Iowa man died when he apparently suffered a head injury when he fell from his bicycle.
Police say evidence at the scene indicates Todd Parsons Western Jr., 64, of Waterloo fell from his bike while riding along a street under construction and struck his head. The man left his home late in the evening, and his body was found the next morning by a neighbor.
Police said it appears he rode into a yard to go around the construction site, but then entered the work area. Western wasn’t wearing a bicycle helmet. The reports did not indicate if his bicycle was equipped with a light.
- Wear a helmet!
- Use a light at night

Police said foul play is not suspected in the man’s death, but an autopsy is planned.
