MATTAPOISETT, MA – The wife of Fall River Mayor Paul Coogan was seriously injured Sunday morning when she was struck by a passenger vehicle while riding her bicycle, WHDH reports.

Judi Coogan was on a 60-mile ride with the Narragansett Bay Wheelmen cycling club when a car ran a stop sign and collided with three of the riders, Mayor Coogan wrote on Facebook.
