A 50-year-old bicyclist was killed in a crash with a Port St. Lucie police vehicle, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The Florida Highway Patrol and other investigating authorities said the cyclist, identified as Eric Stauber, was traveling northbound on the western sidewalk of SW Bayshore Boulevard approaching SW Swan Avenue.
A marked Port St. Lucie Police Department car driven by a 52-year-old officer was heading south on SW Bayshore Boulevard approaching SW Swan Avenue.

As the police vehicle, a 2007 Ford Crown Victoria, was traveling southbound, its right-side tires collided with the cyclist.
Stauber was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Florida Highway Patrol officials.
The Florida Highway Patrol said the cause of the crash remains under investigation.
Anyone with additional information concerning accident is asked to contact the Florida Highway Patrol or any other relevant investigating authority.
