A bicycle accident that happened last week in Twin Cities, Minnesota is being investigated by authorities due to mysterious circumstances. An experienced cyclist, Bob Prudhomme, was discovered by a passerby along the side of the road. It was originally thought that Prudhomme suffered a stroke; however, after being transported to the hospital, an examination determined he had suffered blunt force trauma to the back of his head. According to the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Department, investigators are now attempting to determine if Prudhomme was involved in a hit and run accident, got back on his bike and then suffered a stroke from the head trauma. His family is preparing to take him off of life support within the next day or two. Anyone with information regarding the accident is encouraged to contact the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Department.
