CSU Professor Killed in Bicycle Accident in Berthoud
The bicyclist who was killed in a crash with a semi truck in Berthoud on Monday has been identified as CSU professor Gary Moody.
Moody, 62, was riding his bike in the same direction as a tanker truck on Berthoud Parkway near Mountain Avenue when he crashed into the passenger side of the truck. The Larimer County Coroner's Office announced yesterday that Moody died of "multiple blunt force injuries" and ruled his death as accidental.
