DALLAS TWP. — A Harveys Lake man was killed when his bicycle ran into a pickup truck on state Route 309 on Friday night, township police said.

Cyclist David Michael Denlinger, 25, died at 1:46 a.m. Saturday at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center.

Kendall Dawn Jackloski, 23, of Kunkle, was driving a 2012 Ford F150 pickup southbound on Route 309 at Old Tunkhannock Highway when Denlinger’s cycle struck the truck at 9:40 p.m., police said.

Denlinger was riding north on Route 309, attempting to turn onto Old Tunkhannock Highway, when he crossed into the southbound lane and crashed head-on into the truck, according to police.

Another cyclist, Brian Malkemes, 25, of Monroe Township, told police he saw Denlinger cross from the northbound into the southbound lane, directly into Jackloski’s path.

Jackloski was not injured and showed no signs of alcohol or drug intoxication, police said, and will not be charged in connection with the crash.

The bicycle Denlinger was riding had no working lights and “minimal” reflectors on the pedals and spokes, and he was not wearing a helmet, police said.

Toxicology results on Denlinger were pending Saturday.
