The cyclist injured in a bicycle-vehicle collision on Mississippi 605 has died, according to the Gulfport Police Department.
The cyclist’s name is being withheld because relatives have not been notified. Police haven’t released any details about the crash, including the name of the driver whose vehicle collided with the cyclist.
An accident reconstruction team was at the scene for nearly two hours and the investigation continues. No arrests have been made.
A yellow bicycle, its back wheel badly bent, lay on its side at the peak of the bridge shortly after a downpour. There were no damaged vehicles in sight.
