A 43-year-old man was killed Friday evening after he was hit by a car while riding his bike, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said.
Brent Becraft died in the accident, which happened at about 6:30 p.m. at Boynton Beach Boulevard and Lyons Road.
Deputies say Becraft was riding his Cannondale bike in the bicycle lane going north on Lyons Road. A 2008 Dodge van, driven by 51-year-old Rafael Perez, was headed west on Boynton Beach Boulevard.
Deputies said Becraft pedaled through a red light into the intersection and was hit by the van and tossed into the air. Becraft was taken to Delray Medical Center, where he died, deputies said.
