UPDATE: Cyclist Died Due To Head And Neck Injury

The 69-year-old man who died Thursday afternoon after a bicycle accident in Steamboat has been identified. Phillip Sohn is the second person to die in a bike accident in the area in the last two weeks. Sohn, who reportedly lived in both Steamboat and Texas, was riding downhill on Aspen Ridge Road when the accident occurred. According to a press release from the Routt County Sheriff’s Office, Sohn’s body was found in a culvert on the side of the road by other bike riders, who were performing CPR when emergency crews arrived on the scene just before 1. Attempts to revive Sohn with a defibrillator were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead on scene by the Routt County Coroner. An autopsy determined that Sohn died due to a traumatic neck and head injury. A Steamboat man who was not wearing a helmet also died during a bicycle accident earlier this month, after crashing his bike on Trafalger Drive.
