An 81-year-old man riding a three-wheeled bike was killed in Bethesda, Maryland, Monday morning after he was hit by a car, police say.
Ned Gaylin, of Chevy Chase, died after he was hit in a marked crosswalk on the Capital Crescent Trail, crossing Little Falls Parkway, Montgomery County police said.
He was a retired professor who worked in University of Maryland's School of Public Health, his wife said.
Gaylin was hit by a Mercedes E320 being driven by a 78-year-old Bethesda man, police said.
First-responders arrived at the scene about 11:30 a.m. Gaylin was rushed to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.
The regular user of the popular trail was riding a recumbent bike, in which a cyclist rides partially reclined. The bike had an orange flag, and Gaylin was wearing a helmet, police said.
Cyclists and pedestrians who use the trail said they fear for their safety at the intersection where Gaylin was hit.
It is not known at this time if the driver will face charges.
Anyone with information on the crash is asked to call police at 240-773-6620.
