Bicyclist, 50, dies after colliding with car in Las Cruces

LAS CRUCES, NM - A bicyclist has died of his injuries following a collision with a vehicle in Las Cruces last week, KTSM reports. 

The victim was identified as 50-year-old David Mancha.  The accident happened in the area of Solano Drive and Lohman Avenue June 28 at about 7 a.m.

An investigation indicated that Mancha was going west on the Lohman sidewalk when he attempted to cross Solano Drive and continued through the intersection, where he was struck by a southbound SUV. 

Mancha was airlifted to University Medical Center in El Paso and was later pronounced dead.
