JAMES CITY COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) – A woman was killed while riding her bike to work in James City County Monday working.

Police were called to the accident scene on Old Stage Road near the I-64 overpass at 9:45 a.m.

The preliminary investigation determined 33-year-old Theresa Morales was riding her bicycle east on the shoulder of Old Stage Road when she attempted to cross to the other side of the road and was hit by a cement truck. Police say the truck was in the left eastbound lane and the driver honked his horn when he saw Ms. Morales merging into the road, but he couldn’t avoid the collision. Ms. Morales may have been listening to music on headphones and did not hear the truck’s horn. She was reportedly heading to work at the Subway inside the Star Express when the accident happened.

The crash remains under investigation. No charges are expected to be filed against the cement truck driver.
