Thibodaux man struck and killed while riding bicycle

GRAY, La. (AP) — A Thibodaux man who was struck while riding his bicycle in Terrebonne Parish has died of his injuries.

In a statement released Saturday, Louisiana State Police say 55-year-old Richard Barnes was struck by a pickup truck Friday night while attempting to cross both lanes of Louisiana Highway 24 in Gray.

Barnes was transported to Thibodaux Regional Medical Center, but later died from his injuries.

The pickup truck was driven by 70-year-old Dale Jackson of Houma. Jackson submitted to a breath test and was cleared of any alcohol involvement. Toxicology tests were pending for Barnes.
