EDITOR'S NOTE: This story has been corrected to report that while the intersection had turn arrows, the cyclist is believed to have had a green light for through-traffic at the time and should have yielded to oncoming traffic before turning left.
A 35-year-old cyclist died from injuries sustained in a crash northeast of Boulder on Monday that Colorado State Patrol investigators say likely occurred when he turned left in front of an oncoming vehicle.
Colorado State Patrol Trooper Josh Lewis said the crash at 63rd Street and Jay Road was reported at 9:02 a.m. Monday.
The cyclist, who was from Boulder, was stopped in the left turn lane on westbound Jay at 63rd, Lewis said, while a Subaru driven by a 61-year-old woman was traveling east on Jay.
Lewis said investigators believe the driver had a green light allowing her to enter the intersection when the cyclist — who would have been required to yield to oncoming traffic — attempted to turn left onto 63rd, and was struck by the Subaru.
Though that intersection has green and yellow left-turn arrows, Lewis said it's believed the cyclist only had the green light for through-traffic when he chose to attempt his turn.
The cyclist was transported to Boulder Community Health's Foothills Hospital, but died at the hospital.
The man's identity will be publicly released by the Boulder County Coroner's Office following the notification of next-of-kin.
Drugs and alcohol are not suspected to be factors in the crash, Lewis said, and the driver has not been charged.
The driver of the Subaru remained at the scene of the crash and was cooperating with investigators, Lewis said.
Monday's incident was the first fatal crash of the year involving a cyclist, and at least the fourth traffic fatality in Boulder County this year.
Last year was the deadliest year on the road in Boulder County in more than a decade, with 30 people dying in crashes, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation.
