CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A man died after his e-bike collided with SUV on Columbia Parkway Thursday, according to the Hamilton County Coroner’s Office.

Richard Vennemeyer, 53, was headed south on Kemper Lane around 11:39 a.m. when he lost control of his Fuji E-Traverse 2 and crossed onto Columbia Parkway, a news release from the Cincinnati Police Department’s Traffic Unit said.

Police say the e-bike then struck a 2015 Lexus NX that was stopped for a traffic light in the eastbound lanes of Columbia Parkway.

Vennemeyer was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center where he later died.

Police say excessive speed appears to have played a role in the crash.

Vennemeyer was not wearing a helmet at the time.

Any witnesses to the crash are asked to call the CPD’s Traffic Unit at (513) 352-2514.
