The Goddard man who was critically injured in a collision involving two bicycles last week in Garden Plain has died.
Roger Haynie, 65, died Friday at Wesley Medical Center. Haynie and a friend rode a bike trail from Goddard to Garden Plain last Tuesday morning and were preparing to start the return leg when the collision occurred just before 10:30 a.m. at 362 N. Section Line Road, which is just south of the high school in Garden Plain, authorities have said.
The two men were riding nearly side-by-side on the paved road, with Haynie trailing slightly and off to the left. His friend thought Haynie was directly behind him and cut left toward the bike path. The two bicycles T-boned, and Haynie flew off his bike and landed on the pavement.
He wasn’t wearing a helmet and suffered a serious head injury, authorities said. The second rider suffered only minor injuries.
Haynie was a retired IT specialist for the Goddard school district. Funeral services have been set for Thursday at Pathway Church in Wichita.
