    Police were also checking to see if the truck, described as a pickup truck, was the same vehicle that crashed into the median of a road not far away, less than 5 minutes after the collision.

    Rescue personnel were also checking to see if the pickup truck they had identified was a vehicle they was looking for after an earlier drunken driving report.

    Maybe at the park that is just right down the road from where you're showing?

    From looking at the photos included with the news articles it does appear to have occurred on the main road, not within the park. I think I've found the "Do Not Pass" sign shown in the photos and it's on the main road (Wendredge) just a little bit north of the park near the curved driveway leading to a house.

    At least nine victims were involved, some of whom may be children, according to Kalamazoo County Undersheriff Paul Matyas. It was not immediately clear whether any of those killed were children.

    Five people were killed and four others were injured Tuesday evening after a truck crashed into a group of bicyclists...

    Prosecutor Jeff Getting said in a press conference Tuesday night that a 50-year-old male driver is in custody in connection with the crash...

    Getting said all of the victims are adults.

    More from wfgodot's link:

    [...]
    In the about 30 minutes before the crash, calls came in to the City of Kalamazoo police (at 6:08 p.m.), the sheriff’s department (6:13 p.m.) and Kalamazoo Township police (6:21 p.m.) with concerns about the way a man was driving a blue pickup truck, Getting said. Officers were looking for that vehicle, but had not yet spotted it and were not pursuing it at the time of the crash.
    The first 911 call about the crash came in at 6:36 p.m.
    [...]
    MSP is handling the crash reconstruction. My heart goes out to all affected.

    I am an avid cyclist and this story scares me so much. I feel terrible for all those innocent cyclists who were injured and wish for a quick recovery for them. RIP to those who went out for a bike ride and were killed through no fault of their own. This is so wrong. So thankful the driver has been apprehended.

    Kalamazoo County Prosecutor Jeff Getting says police are checking evidence to determine if the suspect involved in Tuesday afternoon's fatal bicycle-pickup truck crash had been drinking.

    "I can tell you that there was evidence from the suspect that will be analyzed by the Michigan State Police to determine what, if any, substance the suspect was under the influence of," Getting said.

    I immediately thought of the Uber driver case (not putting his name here) - - Kalamazoo is not super populated. I can't help but wonder if we will hear about connections folks may have had to both of these tragedies. I got the impression from MSM reporting last night that this was deliberate.
