A 45-year-old man is dead after being hit on his bicycle by a truck in Phoenix early Wednesday morning, according to Phoenix police Sgt. Mercedes Fortune.

The man was traveling on Thomas Road at 46th Avenue when he was struck by a truck just before 7:00 a.m.

Phoenix firefighters found the man in full cardiac arrest and not breathing, he was transported to a trauma center but later died from his injuries, said Capt. Jake Van Hook with the Phoenix Fire and Medical Department.
