JACKSONVILLE, Fla — A 51-year-old Jacksonville bicyclist is dead after he was struck by a vehicle Tuesday, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
FHP says the crash happened at 12:19 p.m. on Chaffee Road and POW-MIA Memorial Parkway, just north of Chaffee Trail Elementary.
The 47-year-old woman driving the vehicle was traveling in the northbound lanes of Chaffee Road when the male bicyclist came into the northbound lanes from the eastbound shoulder, troopers say. This resulted in the crash where the man died on the scene, FHP says.
As of 3 p.m., the roadway was cleared, according to FHP's traffic map.
