Springfield Cyclist Killed By PECO Utility Truck Near Glen Mills

The News of Delaware County reports that a 63 year-old man from Springfield Township was killed on Tuesday afternoon while riding his bicycle on Creek Rd in Thornbury Township.

The article states that the cyclist ran into a PECO Utility Truck. The road was closed at the time due to a power line that was brought down by a fallen tree. We will amend this post as we learn more details about this tragedy.

Our deepest sympathies go out to the victim's family.
