DELRAY BEACH, Fla. — Delray Beach police said a 64-year-old man died after being struck by an SUV while riding a bike Thursday night.

The bicyclist was traveling east around 6:30 p.m. and hit by a vehicle traveling west on Germantown Road near Homewood Boulevard.

The victim, who police believe is homeless, later died at the hospital.

The driver of a gray Jeep Grand Cherokee left the scene, but police later located the vehicle and talked with the driver.
