Cyclist Hit by SUV Dies

By  | 

The cyclist hospitalized for serious head injuries after colliding with an SUV early Thursday morning has died.

Posts to a support fund set up for Matthew Harker's family show he died this afternoon at the Denver hospital he had been taken to shortly after the accident.

Authorities say Harker's bike and the SUV that hit him were traveling in opposite directions when they collided.

Investigators are looking at details of the accident before releasing any specific information, but an officer originally told News 13 they believed the crash was alcohol-related. It doesn't appear any charges have been filed at this point.

If you witnessed the crash, police would like you to contact them to aid in the investigation.

Harker is survived by his wife and young sons. Click on the link in the sidebar for the support fund if you would like to donate to the family.
