Bicyclist dies after being hit by van

A Madeira Beach man died Tuesday afternoon when he was hit by a van while riding a bicycle on Duhme Road near 51st Avenue N.

David M. Pimentel, 37, was riding south about 12:25 p.m. on the sidewalk along the east shoulder of Duhme Road when he turned west and tried to cross the northbound lanes, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

At the same time, a 2004 Ford van was traveling north in the middle lane of Duhme Road.

Pimentel rode into the van's path, was hit and thrown from the bike, authorities said. He died at the scene.

The van's driver, Ettore Pensavalle, 62, of Largo, was not injured, authorities said.

An investigation of the crash remained ongoing Tuesday night.
