A bicyclist killed in a crash on Drew Street Thursday night has been identified by police as Henry Rackard, 57, of Clearwater. According to police, a preliminary investigation shows that Rackard was attempting to cross Drew Street near Evergreen Avenue when he was struck by an eastbound Buick driven by Milton Lee Smallwood, 54, also of Clearwater. Rackard sustained "massive injuries," according to Clearwater public safety spokeswoman Elizabeth Watts, and died at the scene. Alcohol might have been a factor in the collision, authorities said Friday. The investigation is continuing.
