Identities of Principals involved in Pickup/Bicycle Fatality Released
The names of the driver and the bicyclist involved in the traffic fatality Friday in Medford have been released.
Friday afternoon 66-year-old Gary James Tuer, of Medford, was riding his bike north on Riverside Avenue when he struck the rear quarter panel of a white 2012 Chevy pickup driven by Cody James Smith of Jacksonville.
Tuer succumbed to his injuries later that afternoon at Rogue Regional Medical Center.
An autopsy will be performed later this week. There is no evidence Smith was under the influence of drugs or alcohol. After the autopsy the case will be reviewed by the Jackson County D.A.ís office.
