The preliminary investigation shows that a tan, 2008 Ford Expedition was in the left lane of westbound traffic on E. Koenig Lane when the driver unsuccessfully attempted to brake and change lanes in order to avoid striking a bicyclist that was cycling against the flow of traffic on a one-way street. The bicyclist, Mark Coley Davis, was transported to Dell Seton Medical Center at the University of Texas where he was pronounced deceased at 12:54 p.m.
The driver of the Ford remained on scene and is cooperating with investigators. Driver impairment was not a factor in the crash.
