Topeka Woman Killed in Bicycle / Truck Accident

WALNUT, Kan. (AP) — The head of the Washburn University art department died when her bicycle was hit by a pickup truck in Crawford County.  Authorities say 60-year-old Glenda Taylor of Topeka died in the accident Sunday in rural Walnut while she was competing in the Kansas State Time Trial Championships.  The Crawford County Sheriff's department said in a news release the accident occurred when the truck driver struck Taylor's bike as he tried to pass her on Highway 146. The pickup truck driver and a passenger were not injured.   Washburn University President Jerry Farley says Taylor was a Washburn faculty member for 27 years. In 2013, she received the Muriel Clarke Student Life Award at Washburn for outstanding work with individual students, student groups and organizations.
