Authorities have identified the bicyclist who was hit by a car and killed near Memorial Park.
It happened just before dusk, according to police, at the intersection of Memorial Drive and Memorial Loop.
Police said the cyclist, identified as 47-year-old Jonathan Lennard, was attempting to cross Memorial Drive and the driver of the car was traveling Westbound on Memorial. Investigators haven't said who had the right of way.
"This is a busy park with lots of people on bikes and running and cars on the street," said Sgt. Johnny McFarland. "This is a fast street, you definitely have to be careful."
Witnesses told Local 2 the cyclist was hit hard. Skid marks, where the driver of the car hit the brakes, were visible on the road.
"As you can see, his shoes are still lying that way, at least 100 feet away from his body," said Michael Pham, a witness who ran by the scene just moments after impact. "It was a very hard impact."
"I turned the corner and I heard a mighty thump," said Charlotte Jolivet. "I knew someone was in trouble. I heard the crashing."
Both witnesses who spoke to Local 2 said they have seen accidents at the intersection before.
Police spent most of the night talking to witnesses, and were attempting to piece it all together and determine what happened.
After hitting the man on the bicycle, the driver of the car slammed into a street pole. He was hurt in the crash and was taken to the hospital to be checked out.
Jolivet said she saw that he had injuries to his upper torso area and was bleeding from his nose.
