Officials say he biked across the middle of the road and not at an intersection, as a result was struck by an oncoming southbound truck.

The bicyclist suffered head injuries and was taken away from the scene in an ambulance, he was conscious at the time.

Officials say it does not seem that the truck driver was at fault. That driver claimed the bicyclist "appeared out of nowhere."
