BRANDON — A 71-year-old bicyclist riding with a companion was killed when he crossed from a grassy median into the path of an oncoming pickup truck Thursday evening on State Road 60 east of Valrico, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
Johnny F. Renshaw of Dover was killed in the 7:05 p.m. collision near Marge Owens Road, east of the Hillsborough County Fairgrounds.
Renshaw was crossing S.R. 60 north to south with Frank P. Lucas, 68, of Brandon, when the two stopped in the median of the four-lane road before proceeding, the Highway Patrol said.
Lucas remained in the median but Renshaw continued crossing and was struck by an eastbound 2005 Ford F-150 pickup truck driven by Diana Rosales-Garcia, 23, of Plant City, the Highway Patrol said.
