Longtime business journalist Thomas Steinert-Threlkeld has died at the age of 59 after the bicycle he was riding was hit by a car in Connecticut.

John Pirro of the News-Times writes, “Steinert-Threlkeld, 59, was editorial director at B2B Publishing and editor-in-chief of Edge of the Road, a website for cyclists. He was a journalist who wrote about how technology is used to achieve business goals, according to his profile on LinkedIn.

“A former business columnist and technology reporter for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram in Texas, he founded Baseline Magazine in 2001. He and his team subsequently won the Grand Neal Award from the American Society of Magazine Editors for and investigation that uncovered a series of deaths in Panama resulting from a faulty piece of software developed by a St. Louis company.

“His wife told DallasNews.com that Steinert-Threlkeld took up cycling 20 years ago, when knee problems forced him to give up running.

“‘He got on the bike and never got off,’ she told DallasNews.com.”
