Bicyclist hit by car, dies in Lakewood
LAKEWOOD - Investigations by local police continue into the Saturday night collision of a bicyclist with a car that led to the two-wheeler rider's death.
The identity of the 63-year-old bike rider has yet to be revealed by township authorities, who said that the driver is 17 years of age.
