Bicyclist Dies After Being Hit By Vehicle in Kirkwood
A Broome County man who apparently was riding his bike home after working at a snack-food factory died shortly after he was struck by a vehicle.
Authorities say 30-year-old Bradley Murray of Binghamton was riding along Upper Court Street in the town of Kirkwood when he was hit around 3:10 Sunday morning.
Murray was taken to Wilson Medical Center in Johnson City. He died after undergoing surgery.
According to the Broome County Sheriff’s Office, Murray was struck by a vehicle driven by 34-year-old Branden Bowen of Waverly.
Bowen was charged with felony driving while intoxicated. He was arraigned in Kirkwood town court and sent to Broome County jail.
Investigators believe Murray had just completed a shift at the Kirkwood Frito Lay plant before he was hit by the vehicle on his way home.
