TRAVELERS REST, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Troopers said a cyclist died after running into a Freightliner tractor trailer Saturday morning on US 25 in northern Greenville County.

Troopers said the crash happened just before 11:30 a.m. about 12.5 miles north of Travelers Rest.

Both the truck and the bike were heading south when troopers said the cyclist collided with a wheel of the truck and was thrown from the bike.

The cyclist was airlifted to Mission Hospital in Asheville where troopers said the cyclist later passed away.

The coroner on Sunday identified the cyclist as 55-year-old Michael Roberts of Terra Lakes Drive in Greer.

No charges were filed in the crash.
