Cyclist Injured By Driver In Show Low Crash Dies

Navajo County Sheriff Office

Authorities say a bicyclist who was struck by a vehicle while participating in an annual benefit ride in Show Low last month has died from his injuries. A spokesperson for the Arizona Department of Public Safety says the 58-year-old man died Saturday.

He was one of seven bicyclists injured June 19th when 36-year-old Shawn Michael Chock plowed into a crowd of riders. Witnesses say Chock struck the group, hit a telephone pole, then drove down the road and turned around, heading back toward the cyclists before driving away. Police caught up to him and shot him outside a hardware store. Chock sustained non-life threatening injuries and remains jailed in Navajo County. He was indicted last week on multiple charges, including aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The Navajo County attorney’s office says more charges are expected to be filed in the wake of the cyclist’s death. On Saturday, before the death was announced publicly, hundreds of people took part in a benefit ride in Tempe for those injured in the Show Low crash.
