They haven't let out any details as of yet. The guy was from Carrboro said the article I saw, but we'll let everyone know what I find out. I wonder if it is anyone that I know since we have a rather large cycling community in and around Chapel Hill, but we pretty much know each other. I hope not.brewdude said:

The site of the accident is pretty treacherous. Hwy 54 is a busy, four-lane divided highway with no lights or shoulders to speak of. I'd say traffic normally moves at around 55-60mph along that stretch since it's about a mile in either direction to the nearest patch of civilization.
Been a dangerous week on the roads here in CH. Two pedestrians and one cyclist killed in the last three days.
Stay safe out there.
