A bicyclist was killed Monday morning in a crash on Oberlin Road near the Lorain County Regional Airport.
Mark Snyder, 58, of Amherst Township, was pedaling south toward Oberlin around 8:27 a.m. when he was clipped by the mirror of a passing Chevy van driven by Ronald Carr, 81, also of Elyria.
Snyder was knocked from his bike — he was flown by helicopter to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland, where he died from his injuries.
State troopers said he’d been wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, which does not appear to be caused by drugs or alcohol.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol continues to investigate.
