GRANDIN, N.D. – A south Fargo man is dead after he was hit on his bicycle by a pickup truck Saturday morning about a mile north of here.

David Hawkinson, 50, was riding his bike south on Traill County Road 81 when Justin Jalbert, 26, of Hunter, approached him from behind in his truck at a higher rate of speed.

According to a press release from the North Dakota Highway Patrol, Jalbert did not see Hawkinson and struck the rear tire of his bicycle, throwing Hawkinson off the bike and killing him. Jalbert was uninjured.

The crash remains under investigation, but authorities believe distracted driving was a contributing factor in the crash.
