Cyclist killed in crash near Leoti

A bicylist from California who was taking part in the cross-country Trans Am Bike Race has died after being struck by a vehicle late Saturday in western Kansas, authorities said.

Fishbein was traveling east on K-96 about 8 miles east of Leoti in Wichita County when he was struck just after 10 p.m. on Saturday, the crash report said.

He has been identified as Eric Fishbein, 61, of San Luis Obispo.

The patrol says the car's 25-year-old driver and a 27-year-old passenger were taken to a hospital with possible injuries.

Fishbein was competing in the 4,300-mile Trans Am Bike Race, which began June 3.

The Trrans AM Bike Race is now being led by Evan Deutsch from Portland, Oregon who has around 400 kilometres left to ride to the finish in Newport News, Virginia.

Fishbein's death comes less than three months after that of a past victor of the Trans Am Bike Race, British ultracyclist Mike Hall.
