Death of road rider last evening?

Anyone know what happened with rider from Canton killed yesterday?

Gordon Keller (42) - I don't know him

According to Canton Patch, it happened at Dunkin Donuts intersection in New Hartford ~ 7:30 pm last night. He was life stared but didn't make it. He was traveling East and a vehicle traveling West hit him while making left hand turn.

It happened very close to the time (must have been not long after) the EBCC Hillfest ride came through that same intersection.

There is more detail in the Canton Patch.

> After the sudden loss of Gordon in a tragic accident on June 20th, we find ourselves reaching out for help. Gordon was a beautiful soul that was so passionate about his family and about living life in the moment. He was a triathlete who was a true IRONMAN. He believed anything was possible, and his commitment and dedication to all things made that very clear.
