Source: Around midnight Nov. 3, a cyclist was hit from behind near the intersection of East Riverside Drive and Yellow Jacket Lane. The cyclist, Cody Johnson, was transported to University Medical Center Brackenridge in critical condition, but later died. Friends of Johnson said he was well known in the Austin cyclist community and even worked at a local bike shop. They also said that over the weekend family chose to take Johnson off of life support. One of the cycling groups Johnson rode with, Queer Ride, will remember him at the end of their regular ride on Wednesday night. They leave from the Long Center around 7:30. Afterwards there will be a slide show and remembrances. After the accident, the driver did stay on scene and was arrested for a DWI. Other charges against the driver are pending. Police have not yet released the name of the suspect. KXAN will keep you updated as more information is available.
