A bicyclist was killed in the eastern Twin Cities after he was in a collision with a pickup truck.

According to the State Patrol, the pickup driver was heading west on Hwy. 36, approaching Hilton Trail in Pine Springs at 12:35 p.m. Wednesday.

It was at that point a bicyclist cut straight across the exit ramp in front of the pickup, with the pickup hitting it at the start of the ramp.

The bicyclist suffered fatal injuries. He has been identified as Gary Bernard Michel, 67, of St. Paul.

It doesn't say on the State Patrol report whether he was wearing a helmet.
