Medford police have released the name of the motorist and the bicyclist involved in a fatal vehicle/bicycle collision Friday afternoon. 23-year old Cody Smith of Applegate was turning into a business driveway on North Riversde around 1.p.m in his pick-up truck, when 66-year old Gary James Tuer ran into Smith’s truck on his bicycle. Tuer- who was not wearing a helmet- struck his head on the pavement, sustaining a serious head injury. He died an hour later at a Medford hospital. Police say Smith committed a traffic violation during his turn, but a preliminary investigation determined he was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
