Cyclist dies after being hit by truck

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Dallas woman died at University Medical Center after being hit by a pickup truck while riding her bicycle near Ransom Canyon Friday morning.

The accident happened at 8:30 a.m. on County Road 3523, near the entrance to Ransom Canyon. Stephanie Jackson, 27, of Lubbock was traveling west bound on CR 3523 in a 2004 Ford pickup when she came up to a cyclist that was also traveling west bound. Michelle Armstrong, 55, of Dallas was hit by the pickup truck.

"When I got a little closer, I realized that it was a bicyclist that had been hit by a truck, so I immediately just stopped and blocked traffic so no one else would hit 'em again," says Brandon Blair, a motorist that witnessed the aftermath of the accident.

Armstrong was taken to University Medical Center by AeroCare and was originally listed in critical condition. Friday night UMC gave word that Armstrong had passed away.

According to Cpl. John Gonzales with DPS, Jackson told officials that the cyclist veered into the road and she was unable to swerve out of the way. The accident investigation team is measuring the skid marks at the scene to determine what happened. No charges have been filed.
