A woman riding her bike in Phoenix, Arizona on Thursday morning was hit by a car and killed by a semi-truck.
According to a Phoenix police report, a semi was heading westbound on I-10 near the intersection of N. Meridian St. and N. Phoenix St. when it came across a man riding his bike in the center lane.
The semi then swerved left and hit the man’s bike head-on.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the semi, a 49-year-old male, fled the scene in a silver or gold vehicle, police said.
A witness who was riding in the same lane said she was driving in the wrong direction when she saw the semi’s driver drive through the intersection.
She said she saw two other people on foot, including a young woman, with their hands up in the air.
She said the young woman tried to pull over but couldn’t and then she got out of the way.
She saw the driver’s body roll to the ground.
The witness said she tried to give CPR on the man who had been struck, but he was dead.
Police said a preliminary autopsy showed the man was a licensed driver with a medical marijuana card and that the driver of that vehicle was also a licensed commercial driver with medical marijuana cards.
