A Kissimmee man was hit and killed by a pickup truck as he was riding his bicycle on Nova Road early Tuesday morning , according to Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers said the crash took place on Nova Road west of Gator Branch Road in St. Cloud around 6:30 a.m. when a Ford F-250 and a bicyclist were both traveling in the eastbound lane of Nova Road near St. Cloud.

The driver of the pickup, who was from Rockledge, Florida, told authorities that he was unable to see the man on the bike because it was dark at the time of the crash, and the bike had no lights.

The man driving the pickup was not injured. The bicyclist was pronounced dead at the scene.
