The HopNews posted an obituary for Nancy Ann Bronder, who died on Aug. 7 as a result of injuries sustained in a bicycle collision with an automobile.
The crash occurred just before 6 p.m. on July 19 on Ash Street in Hopkinton, MA. Emergency services responded to multiple reports of a cyclist unconscious in the roadway.
A resident of Ash Street, Nate Oram, reported on seeing the post-crash scene in a letter to that same local website. "Ash street is a narrow, 'SCENIC' road, yet vehicles regularly travel at speeds of up to 50 MPH," wrote Oram, who urged for measures to be taken to calm the car traffic.
No citations have been issued or arrests made.
