Hospitalized Bike Rider Identified

The man injured in what is believed at first to have been a bike-truck collision was identified Thursday by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP). John Beasley, 43, of Fort Smith was admitted to Sparks Regional Medical Center in Fort Smith and was reported in stable condition with multiple injuries following the fall from his bicycle. The OHP reported Beasley was riding his bicycle on U.S. Highway 64 east of Roland at about 12:15 a.m. Thursday. The OHP trooper reported Beasley apparently fell from the bicycle or was buffeted by a semi-truck causing him to lose control and fall in the traffic lane. The bicycle was then truck by a 2003 Chevrolet pickup driven by Shane Moore, 44, of Roland. Moore was not injured in the crash. According to the OHP report, it was not determined if Beasley was struck by the truck. The OHP trooper reported there was an odor of alcohol on Beasley.
