Clearwater man dies when bike struck by SUV

LARGO — A bicyclist died Monday after he was hit by a sport utility vehicle on Ulmerton Road.

Cecilio Ordonez, 78, of Clearwater was transported to Bayfront Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead after the 11:47 a.m. accident.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Ordonez tried to cross the eastbound lanes of Ulmerton from the median on his Magna bike when he was struck by a 2004 Hyundai driven by 43-year-old Troy Radcliffe of Clearwater.

Ordonez pedaled directly into the path of Radcliffe and was ejected from his bike, the Highway Patrol said.

Radcliffe suffered minor injuries.

The accident happened just east of 56th Court N, near the Cross Bayou Canal.

No charges have been filed. The crash still is under investigation.
