Police release name of bicyclist killed in crash north of Dexter
The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office has released the name of a woman killed when the bicycle she was riding collided with a car at Dexter-Pinckney and North Territorial roads north of Dexter Tuesday evening.
Mary Burrows, 53, of Pinckney died shortly after 6 p.m. Tuesday when she rode her bike onto North Territorial Road after stopping in a ditch at the intersection, said Derrick Jackson, Washtenaw County sheriff’s spokesman.
Jackson said Burrows was riding south on Dexter-Pinckney Road and stopped to take a break at the intersection. When she continued on her way, she rode on to North Territorial, apparently into the path of a westbound Mercury Sable, driven by a Chelsea man.
Jackson said it appeared the driver of the car had the right of way and could not avoid the accident, but the investigation is continuing and a final determination had not been made.
Burrows was wearing a helmet, Jackson said, and was believed to be an experienced bicyclist.
