PHOENIX -- A bicyclist has died after being struck by a vehicle, according to the Phoenix Police Department.

Officer James Holmes says the collision happened around 10 p.m. Friday night when 53-year-old Stephen Dolan Price tried to cross the street. Officers found him lying in the road with severe injuries.

Price was taken to a local hospital, where he died.

Witnesses told police they saw Price trying to cross at the intersection of Grand Avenue and McDowell Road against a red light. They say he appeared to be looking west for approaching traffic when he was struck by a truck coming from the east.

Holmes says Price wasn't wearing a helmet and did not appear to have any lighting or reflectors on the bike.

No charges have been filed against the driver.
