16-Year-Old Bicyclist Killed In Traffic Accident

DPS Troopers are investigating an early morning accident that killed a West Texas teen.

Troopers want to know why Colby Hedgecock was riding a bicycle on U.S. Highway 62 at 2am Wednesday morning. The 16-year-old from Seminole was North of Brownfield when he was hit by a pickup.

Hedgecock was brought to University Medical Center where he later died. DPS officials say there were no reflectors on the bike, and the driver of the pickup, 48-year-old Madison Adams, told troopers he didn't see Hedgecock until it was too late.
