PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — Two people were hit by cars and one of them was killed in separate crashes in Palm Beach County early Tuesday morning.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said a vehicle hit and killed a bicyclist at 2311 10th Avenue North west of Boutwell Road near Lake Worth Beach at 5:45 a.m.

A 2013 Toyota Corolla was heading westbound on 10th Avenue North. Investigators said a bicyclist, identified as James Lindelof, 41, of West Palm Beach was traversing 10th Avenue North from south to north, not in a crosswalk. The front of the Corolla collided with Lindelof, vaulting him over the quarter panel of the vehicle.

Lindelof was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the Corolla stopped just west of the collision and was not hurt.

In addition, a vehicle struck a person at Gun Club Road and Congress Avenue near West Palm Beach, the sheriff's office said. The pedestrian was taken to a local hospital, where that person's condition is not known.

No other information about either crash has been released.
