A McKeesport bicyclist may have crashed into the side of a moving car in a Carrick intersection on Sunday, Pittsburgh police said this morning.

City collision investigation officers are investigating the incident at Overbrook Boulevard and Almont Street that resulted in the death of John Pearson, 55.

Police spokeswoman Diane Richard said based on the preliminary investigation, the driver, whom she did not identify, stopped at the intersection and started moving through it when the bike came down the hill and ran into the side of the car.

Officers are awaiting toxicology reports and no charges have been filed against the driver pending the completion of the investigation, she added.

Mr. Pearson suffered several face and skull fractures and died from injuries suffered in the collision, according to the Allegheny County medical examiner's office, which ruled it an accident after an autopsy today.
