Cyclist killed by VTA train

Original post made by Teri Markle, another community, on Apr 2, 2007

To Whom it may concern. My brother Douglas K. Cowger was killed last Wednesday by a VTA. He was riding his mtn. bike on his lunch break in Sunnyvale, with one of his co-workers. He did stop at an intersection and looked both ways. Doug was an excellent bike rider, and well trained in the all areas of bike safety. The VTA that hit him did NOT sound his bells, etc. When Doug saw the VTA he tried to get out of the way. The VTA clipped his handle bars and sent him flying in the air. Doug died instantly and felt no pain.

This was my uncle and i loved him very much. We will all miss him a lot. My mommy was the person who wrote this article about him.
We love you Doug!
