81-Year-Old Killed in Silk Grass RTA

Two cyclists lost their lives in traffic accidents on Thursday evening. As we reported on last night’s newscast, an elderly man was knocked down by a passenger van in Silk Grass Village. Today, police issued official details saying that the RTA occurred between miles seven and eight on the Southern Highway. The body of eighty-one-year-old Demencio Cruze was discovered in the middle of the highway. Officers also observed a F350 Econoline van on the side of the road with damage. The driver of the van, Francisco Reymundo, told police that Cruz was riding a bicycle on the side of the road and attempted to cross the highway. That’s when he allegedly collided into the van. The elderly man fell off the bicycle and the van ran over him. Reymundo has been served with a notice of intended prosecution.
