Serious bike vs. car crash in Longmont

It's terrible to put a story like this up right next to the last recent story on why it is so great to ride bike in Boulder, but that is a part of what we do. These are the words from the person who took the photos

This happened this evening at approximately 6:15 approximately 1/2 mile west of Nelson and Airport Roads in Longmont. It appears that the car was traveling west, into the setting sun, and turned left onto Peck Drive. Directly into the path of the cyclist that was traveling east on Nelson Road. I don't want to speculate on the rider, but it was a male, his helmet was not broken in two, but he was bleeding heavily from the face/head area. He was taken away in a hurry.
