ANTIOCH, Tenn. (WKRN) – A 60-year-old bicyclist was killed in an accident in Antioch Wednesday afternoon.

It happened around 2:40 p.m. at Mt. View Road and Murfreesboro Pike.

Metro police said the man, identified as Michael Wilson, who was walking with the bike, walked into the southbound and was hit by a vehicle.

Authorities say the contributing factor in the crash appear to be Wilson’s failure to use the available bike lane and failure to yield.
