Tucson bicyclist killed on Golf Links Road

Crossing doesn’t sound correct… how can an eastbound unit that crashed into a westbound unit be “crossing”? Also the area has raised medians; making crossing difficult other than at intersections; but the police/fire describe it as happening on a particular road near another, i.e. not at an intersection. (updated from adot crash data: this was just a staight-up intersection crash; cyclist failed to yield at a, i guess, stop sign)….

10/5/2013 “evening” (dark, one guesses?) E Golf Links Rd and Calle Yucatan.
