The lady in the photo celebrating the new "Share The Road" sign in 2008 has been killed by a motorist on Monday in Palo Pinto County by a vehicle which struck her bike from behind.
This follows an avid Wise County Courthouse cycling enthusiast who posted to Facebook last weekend:
"PSA......To the driver who almost took me out on my bike at 60 per on FM 730...I'm a father with a wife and three kids.... So not slowing down over a hill is stupid and your breakfast burrito or diet coke or whatever is not as important as that. God loves you! ( I so do not want to say that) Please to everyone else just slow down a little bit it will only take about thirty seconds or less out of your day compared to the severe loss possible."
