Cyclist fatality in Falls Church

A cyclist was killed while trying to cross Columbia Pike in the Falls Church area. According to the Falls Church Patch article Cyclist Killed in Crash With Pickup in Falls Church:
Ashgrove Pl/Columbia Pike intersection
Fairfax County police are investigating a crash that left a female cyclist dead on Monday in Falls Church near the intersection of Columbia Pike and Ashwood Place.

Elizabeth P. Shattuck, 58, of Falls Church, was pronounced dead at the scene when the bicycle she was on was hit by a 1998 Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck while she was attempting to cross Columbia Pike from the north to the south around 2 p.m., police said. As the truck traveled westbound on Ashwood Place, Shattuck was hit as she crossed the westbound lanes.

Police said she hit the hood and went over the roof.

Police do not believe the 72-year-old man who was driving the pickup was speeding or under the influence of anything.

Unless Google is messed up, that intersection does not exist. I have ridden along Columbia Pike many times. The only way for said intersection to exist, is at the intersection of Columbia Pike, and Ashgrove Lane.
