Rochester man dies after bicycle accident
A Rochester man died over the weekend after sustaining injuries in a bicycle accident early Saturday morning, according to Capt. Brian Winters of the Rochester Police Department.
Brian Shandley, 24, was found injured on the side of the road on the sidewalk of the 1500 block of Assisi Drive at 5:40 a.m. According to Winters, Shandley lost control of the bike, fell to the ground and struck his head. He was transported to Saint Marys, where he died.
No one witnessed the accident, but Shandley appeared to have been going southeast on the sidewalk on his bicycle when he flipped over the handlebars and hit his head, according to police. He was not wearing a helmet.
Shandley had been out celebrating an event with some friends before borrowing a friend's bike to either ride home or to his vehicle.
