You need to update your information. The driver of the car was NOT the only surviving witness.

There were quite a few witnesses–some motorists, some cyclists, and some pedestrians. Many of the blurbs like this one that I have seen seem to suggest that there may be some question about the truthfulness of the driver’s story. But the reports are that every witness basically said the same thing: Bruce inexplicably turned directly in front of the car and the driver had no time to react.

The link that you have to the Triangle Cycling Forum has a couple of first person accounts from cyclists who were there.
