A 61-year-old Wesley Chapel man died Sunday as he rode his bike on Hillsborough Avenue.

The Florida Highway Patrol reports that David Keith Cecich was traveling westbound in the bike lane on Hillsborough Avenue east of Harney Road when Corey Nathan Lucas, 30 and of Valrico, drove his 2013 Dodge in the same direction.

As Lucas drove into the outside lane, he collided with Cecich, who was then ejected from his bike.

Lucas then stopped his vehicle on the shoulder of the roadway.

Cecich, who was not wearing a helmet, was taken to an area hospital where he died from injuries sustained in the crash.

Charges against Lucas are pending.
