The many scenic roadways around Lake Tahoe attract bicyclists from all over Nevada and around the country. However, sharing these roads with trucks, cars and recreational vehicles can be dangerous for cyclists. Such was the case on July 10 for a California man who was struck by a tractor-trailer.
According to the Nevada Highway Patrol, the collision took place on U.S. 50 in the Cave Rock tunnel just before 10:00 a.m. The NHP says that the truck struck the bicyclist as both were heading east through the tunnel.
