According to the Augusta Gazette:
A truck and a bicycle collided in the 11000 block of SW 70th, outside Augusta, Saturday evening.
Sheriff’s deputies found Harvey M. Furlow, rural Augusta, was driver of a westbound truck on the roadway.
Furlow said he was driving the truck on SW 70th west of Santa Fe Lake Road against the sun around 5:14 p.m. when he observed the westbound bicyclist in front of him.
Katharine E. Wencel, Wichita, the bicyclist, suffered Code Red injuries and was taken to Wesley Medical Center in Wichita for treatment of the life-threatening injuries.
According to a sheriff’s office report, Wencel was bleeding from the nose and the ears and also complained of pain in the rib area.
She was dismissed from the Wichita hospital on Sunday.
No word on any charges against the driver for apparently running the cyclist down from behind.
Get well soon, Katharine!
