ERDC MOURNS THE LOSS OF ENGINEER KILLED IN CYCLING ACCIDENT
The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center mourns the loss of Dr. Jim O’Daniel following a fatal cycling accident in Greenwood, Miss., August 3. O’Daniel, 50, was participating in the 12th annual Bikes, Blues and Bayous cycling event when he was hit by a pickup truck at the intersection of U.S. 82 and Mississippi 7. The Clinton resident was a beloved and highly respected research structural engineer assigned to ERDC’s Geotechnical and Structures Laboratory in Vicksburg and an avid cyclist in his off-time. He is remembered fondly by his co-workers.
