BISHOPVILLE, S.C. -- A bicyclist died Saturday morning after the bike upon which he was riding was struck by a pickup truck.

Both the bike and pickup were north-bound on Joe Dority Road when the pickup truck, driven by a 74-year-old Bishopville man, ran into the bike from behind, Cpl. Bob Beres, South Carolina Highway Patrol, said.

The bike and rider, a 66-year-old Bishopville man, were knocked into the ditch by the impact, Beres said.

The crash remains under investigation by the Patrol's Multi-Disciplinary Accident Investigation Team, Beres said.
