BOOTHBAY HARBOR — Maine police say a 67-year-old bicyclist who collided with a car earlier this month has died.

The Bangor Daily News reported that Linda Cavanaugh of Boothbay Harbor died Thursday.

Police say Cavanaugh was riding home from work Oct. 4 on Route 27 near Hannaford when her bike “veered sharply” into a vehicle driven by Nancy Christopher, 66, of Boothbay Harbor. Cavanaugh fell onto the pavement after the collision.

Police say Cavanaugh was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. Investigators say the collision was “difficult to avoid” because Cavanaugh didn’t signal and swerved abruptly.

This story was corrected at 7:45 p.m. on Oct. 18, 2018.  In its story Oct. 16, The Associated Press erroneously reported the bicyclist’s name.
