On Friday, 7/24/2020 around 2:30 p.m., officers were sent to the intersection of Goodnight and Commercial for a crash involving a cyclist. The 49 YOA male cyclist was pronounced dead at the scene by officers. The actual location of the crash was determined to be in the 100 Blk of W. Goodnight Avenue, just before Commercial Street.
