July 06, 2009

RANSON, W.Va. -- A man died Monday at a Virginia hospital from injuries he received Saturday evening in a bicycle accident in Ranson, Ranson Police Chief William "Bill" Roper said.

The man was flown to Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, Va., after he wrecked the bicycle in the 500 block of 11th Avenue, Roper said.

The victim, believed to be 33 years old, apparently attempted to make the bike jump while on a ramp and crashed in what Roper described as "kind of a freak accident."

Roper was not able to release the victim's name Monday evening.
