Florida Highway Patrol said, a 55-year-old bicyclist was killed when he was struck by a truck on U.S. 17 near the Duval-Nassau County line.
The bicycle rider was identified as David Eugene Adams. He was reportedly riding a motorized bicycle south on the paved shoulder of North Main Street when the incident happened. According to FHP’s report, Adams was knocked off his bike by a pickup truck and onto the road when he was struck by a second pickup truck.
