Ride the Rockies cyclist dies

A woman participating in the Ride The Rockies tour across Colorado died Thursday afternoon when she veered into a motorhome and was run over, the Colorado State Patrol said.

Diane Woolwine, 65, of Boulder died at the intersection of U.S. 50 and Chaffee County Road 111 on the western edge of Salida. Woolwine, who was wearing a helmet, was in a group of six cyclists stopped at a stoplight alongside the motorhome. When the light changed, Woolwine struck the motorhome and fell to the pavement under its wheels.
