Bicyclist hit by truck in Draper dies of injuries

HOLLADAY, Utah (ABC 4 News) - A community is remembering the life of a woman who died after a bizarre bicycle crash.

HOLLADAY, Utah (ABC 4 News) - A community is mourning after a mother died in a bizarre bicycle crash.  Elizabeth Bradley, 29, from Draper leaves behind two children and a husband.

She was riding her bike near 300 East Highland Dr. Wednesday morning when two vehicles crashed and one hit her.

Her friends gathered inside Xcel Fitness in Holladay where she directed pilates classes.  They passed out white ribbons to honor Bradley's life.  They also set up pictures, roses and blank papers and pens.  Her friends wrote personalized notes to her.

Ashley England is Bradley's close friend. She just learned about her death.  "They're taking the good ones from us.  Not Bunny.  It was devastating," said Ashley England. She describes Bradley as a true friend who sincerely loved others and always quick to forgive.

Cheri Fries sifted through pictures of Bradley in her Kaysville Home.  She is reminiscing about their last conversation.  "She just said Cheri, I'm having so much fun with my girls right now.  She just said I can't get enough of them.  I love them so much," said Cheri Fries.

Now she will not get to see her two young daughters grow up, which is devastating for her friends with children the same age Bradley's.  "She just had this, she had this radiant goodness and she was always smiling and encouraging others," said England.

Now all they have are memories of the woman Bradley was and the hundreds of lessons she taught through her example and kind words.  "I think it's safe to say every person who ever knew her is mourning her loss," said Fries.

Elizabeth's family is too devastated to talk with me on camera.  They did release this statement, "The family of Elizabeth "Bunny" Watson Bradley is so appreciative of the outpouring of love in word and deed at this devastating time for all of us.  All who knew Bunny were touched by her generosity, infectious smile and unconditional love that she freely gave.  She is a glowing example of what a wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend is and will be greatly missed by her husband, children, family and friends."

Bradley's friends set up a fund to help her husband raise their two children alone. You can donate at any Zion's Bank under the "Bunny Bradley Donations" fund.
