A 26-year-old bicyclist was hit and killed on the side of U.S. Highway 27 in the early hours of Thursday morning in Clermont.
The bicyclist was identified as Moises Vargas, who was heading south in his Mongo bicycle in the bike lane, right next to U.S. Highway 27 shortly after midnight.
Reports state that a vehicle was also heading south on U.S. Highway 27 when it tried to turn onto U.S. Highway 192 causing the vehicle to hit Vargas.
The force of impact called Vargas to fall off his bike and into the pavement. Another vehicle that attempted to exist to U.S. Highway 192 also hit Vargas.
Vargas was pronounced dead at the scene.
Chargers are pending and the crash remains under investigation.
