A bicyclist was killed Tuesday morning in a crash near Bell County High School, according to Kentucky State Police.

Danny Bullock, 35, of Middlesboro was riding south on Ky. 25E at 6:29 a.m. when he was struck by a 1999 Ford F-150 driven by Justin Warwick, 21, of Pineville, according to state police.

Bullock appeared to have been riding in the middle of the slow lane on a bicycle without a headlight, taillight or reflectors when he was struck, according to state police. The investigation indicates that Bullock was hit by multiple vehicles before being pulled from the road.

Bell County schools were on a two-hour delay because of traffic backups, according to LEX 18. The county school system told the news station that no students were involved in the crash.
