Police: Bicyclist killed in collision involving car

BOOTHBAY HARBOR, Maine (AP) — Maine police say a 67-year-old bicyclist who collided with a car earlier this month has died.

The Bangor Daily News reports Lisa Cavanaugh, of Boothbay Harbor, died Thursday.

Police say Cavanaugh was riding home from work Oct. 4 on Route 27 near Hannaford when her bike “veered sharply” into a vehicle driven by 66-year-old Nancy Christopher, of Boothbay Harbor. Cavanaugh fell onto the pavement after striking the vehicle.

Police say Cavanaugh was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. Investigators say the collision was “difficult to avoid” because Cavanaugh didn’t signal and swerved abruptly.
