TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Tampa Police say a bicyclist was killed in a collision involving three cars, making the victim the sixth cyclist to die on Tampa Bay area roads in the past two months.

The fatality happened early Friday morning. The victim was described as a female in her mid-50s. The unidentified woman died at the scene.

Police say the victim's body came to rest near a red, cinder block house that was struck by a Nissan SUV with enough force to loosen some cinder blocks. Police found the bike wedged beneath the SUV.

Other details, including the names of the drivers, haven't been released.

The woman's death happened just hours before a vigil was scheduled for the recently killed cyclists.
