PHOENIX - A bicyclist lost his life Thursday night after being hit by a car in Phoenix.
Police spokesman Steve Martos said the accident happened around 5:50 p.m. near 32nd Street and McDowell Road.
Martos said the man was traveling westbound on McDowell, and for unknown reasons, turned into the roadway in front of a car that was also traveling westbound.
Authorities said the bicyclist struck the windshield and was pronounced on scene. There was a driver and a passenger in the vehicle at the time of the collision. Their conditions are unknown at this time.
Martos said it is too early to know if impairment was a factor with either party.
The roadway was closed for several hours while crews worked to clear the scene.
