Surveillance video has shown the cyclist riding their mountain bike on the sidewalk with the semi-truck traveling in the far left lane of the road traveling East. According to the police, the cyclist attempted to cross over Charleston Boulevard and struck the rear portion of the trailer. The cyclist died at the scene. Metro Lt.
