DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — A bicyclist has died after being struck by a speeding motorist in Davenport, Iowa — the third fatal accident involving a bicyclist in the Quad-City region in the past month.

The Quad-City Times reports that the accident happened Thursday when a red SUV struck the bicyclist at Kimberly Road and Davenport Avenue. Police say the SUV then fled.

A 13-year-old boy was fatally struck by a police cruiser in Moline, Illinois, on May 4. The officer is on leave while the investigation continues.

Earlier that same day, a 60-year-old man was struck and killed by an SUV in rural Rock Island County, Illinois.
