OKLAHOMA CITY--The cyclist who was sent to the hospital after crashing into other riders Tuesday, has died.
Police say 68-year-old Bernard Monty Maughan veered into oncoming cyclists on the dam. Maughan was an avid cyclist and ranked as one of the best in his age group in the state.
His friends tell News 9 he suffered a medical emergency moments before the crash which caused him to lose control of his bicycle.
"He died doing what he loved to do and that was riding and racing bicycles," says Peter Erdoes, who was in Maughan's cycling club.
"He was always willing to lend a hand to lesser experienced riders," adds Erdoes.
The two other cyclists injured in Tuesday's accident were sent to the hospital in good condition.
