LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- One bicyclist has been killed in an overnight crash in North Fort Myers.
It happened around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday on U.S. 41 near Magnolia Landing Lane.
Florida Highway Patrol and Lee County Sheriff's deputies were on the scene and had northbound lanes shut down for about three and a half hours. Those lanes are back open.
According to FHP, 58-year-old Robert Sciolino of Cape Coral was riding a bicycle in the northbound right lane of U.S. 41 when a pickup truck hit him from behind.
Sciolino was pronounced dead at the scene.
Earlier this year, Fox 4 spoke to Sciolino, who has fought for changes to safety laws regarding bicyclists.
The crash remains under investigation.
A GoFundMe account has been created to help Sciolino's family.
