Cyclist killed in crash

Dr. Verne Ephram Gilbert was an avid bicyclist. Sunday afternoon Gilbert died doing what he loved.

Gilbert was out riding his bicycle when he was involved in an accident with a small sport-utility vehicle.

Gilbert, who lived in Oak Ridge, died as a result of his injuries. He was 85.

“He was in great shape and was pursuing his love of cycling, when he was struck by a car,” Gilbert’s obituary said.
