A 63-year-old man who was riding a bicycle near 135th and MacArthur has died after being struck by a pickup truck shortly before 6 p.m., according to the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff’s Capt. Greg Pollock said the man was riding north on 135th Street and failed to stop at a posted stop sign at the intersection.
A pickup traveling west on MacArthur struck the man after attempting to avoid him, Pollock said. The pickup, driven by a 39-year-old woman, veered into a ditch on the north side of the street.
The man was unresponsive as he was transported to Via Christi Hospital St. Francis, and the woman was taken to Wesley Medical Center in serious condition.
