Cyclists in a cross-country charity bike ride pulled over for some bicycle maintenance and two of the cyclists were struck by a truck. One of them was killed.
Jamie Roberts was struck in Scott County outside of Lexington, according to a statement from the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, based in Baltimore and Columbia. She was riding as part of the nonprofit's "4K for Cancer," a group of college students who are traveling cross-country from Baltimore to Portland over more than two months to fundraise and promote cancer awareness.
Roberts was also the assistant sports information director and an assistant coach for Catholic University's women's basketball team for the past three years.
