PHOENIX (AP) - Phoenix police say a bicycle rider who collided with a semi-truck has died.
Police spokesman James Holmes says 57-year-old Rubin Pina Herrera was biking on the sidewalk of Buckeye Road near 24th Avenue when he swerved to avoid hitting a telephone pole.
Holmes says Herrera lost control and fell into the road. He then struck the side of the truck.
Authorities say Herrera suffered head trauma and was later pronounced dead at a hospital.
The driver did not show any signs of impairment and cooperated with police.
