A man was killed in Seneca County this weekend while participating in a triathlon in Seneca County.
Michael Coyle, 38, of the Rochester area was riding his bike on Route 96A in Varick just before 10 a.m. Saturday.
Police say he ran into the back of a car on the road’s shoulder. That car had run out of gas and the driver parked on the side of the road, according to police.
Coyle was riding in the Musselman Triathlon around the Seneca Lake State Park. He was taken to Geneva General Hospital, where he later died from his injuries.
20 minutes earlier, in a separate incident, a woman from Columbus, Ohio was injured when she fell off her bike while trying to slow down for a water station during the event.
Lan Lin Zhang, 31, of Columbus, Ohio, was taken to a Rochester hospital, where she was listed in critical condition.
