Owensboro man dies when bicycle strikes dog on Roby Road

From the Messenger-Inquirer 5/1/2008

"David W. Nuckols, 53, of the 6300 block of Kentucky 1389 died Wednesday afternoon from head trauma he suffered in a bicycle accident.

About 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nuckols was bicycling on Roby Road when he hit a dog and was thrown from the bicycle.

Daviess County Coroner Bob Howe said reports indicate the man was wearing a helmet.

He died at 12:01 p.m. at Owensboro Medical Health System, Howe said."

I didn't know David personally, but he was a neighbor of Joe Hayden, who lives out on Hwy 1389. Joe was nice enough to host rides on Tuesday and Thursday nights out there in eastern Daviess County. We would park in his side yard and there are 4 or 5 marked routes from his house, with hills. Tuesday was the first ride out there for the season and it is awful that it ended with such a horrible accident. My sympathy and prayers go out to David's family and friends and I know that this tragedy has affected all members of the Owensboro Bicycle Club and those who rode out at Joe Hayden's deeply.
