CORNVILLE, Ariz. — A Gilbert woman has died after an accident involving a
vehicle and three bicyclists in Cornville.
Yavapai County Sheriff’s deputies said 48-year-old Ethelyn Hartline died
Saturday when a van struck her bicycle.
Spokesman Dwight D’Evelyn said Hartline was thrown from the bicycle and into
the car’s windshield before landing on the side of the road.
D’Evelyn said she was declared dead at a Flagstaff hospital around 6 p.m.
Authorities said a 52-year-old man and his 16-year-old daughter, who were riding
a tandem bike, were injured. They have since been treated and released.
The van’s driver, 90-year-old Nelson Shaum, told deputies he thought he had
room to pass the cyclists.
Deputies said he wasn’t hurt and showed no signs of impairment.
The investigation remains ongoing.
