BOCA RATON, Fla. -- A bicyclist died in Boca Raton on Sunday after being struck by a passing car.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says 42-year-old Mark Bronnberg was riding a bicycle southbound on Regional Park Road on the outer edge of the roadway just before 2 p.m. Sunday.

A 2001 Chevy Malibu driven by 56-year-old Scott George Spara of Boynton Beach was traveling northbound.

As Spara approached a left curve, he crossed the center of the roadway and entered the southbound lane.

PBSO says the Bronnberg veered his bicycle to the left and was struck by Spara's vehicle.

Bronnberg was ejected from his bicycle and impacted the windshield of the vehicle.

He died about 45 minutes later. PBSO says Bronnberg was wearing a bicycle helmet.
