BIKEIOWA NOTE

Other new sources and obituary indicate Terry was 79 years old (not 76).


Although we despise the verbiage used in some new posts, we post exactly the verbiage from the new sources.
example1 : "Authorities say the bicyclist collided with a Ford Escape."
example2 : Authorities say a 2017 Silver Escape was driving northbound on Linn Benton Road, when it collided with Zabokrtsky on his bicycle

It was the driver of the vehicle who hit and killed Terry. Quit framing the crash to make it sound like a2017 Silver Escape was to blame. Grr.
