A cyclist was killed Saturday after being hit by a vehicle whose driver may have been falling asleep in northeast Fort Collins.

Emergency crews were dispatched shortly before 3 p.m. Saturday on a report of crash involving a vehicle and a bicyclist about one-quarter mile north of the intersection of Lemay Avenue and Vine Drive. Fort Collins police located a bicycle, a Dodge Durango SUV, and a Ford F-350 truck that was pulling a small boat.

After a lengthy investigation Saturday, police determined 18-year-old Earl Ong, of Fort Collins, was traveling north on Lemay. Ong realized he was about to hit the truck in front of him, swerve to the right, and crashed into the cyclist, investigators said.

The cyclist was traveling northbound in the bike lane.
