Authorities have identified a man who died Sunday after he fell from his bike and was struck by a vehicle on the Burnet R. Maybank Bridge over the Wappoo Creek.
Eduardo Gomez Ortiz died at the scene from multiple body injuries, Charleston County Deputy Coroner Kelly Myers said.
Ortiz, who was originally from Mexico, was about 37 years old, Myers said. He lived on James Island.
Ortiz was riding a bicycle south on Folly Road about 9 p.m. when he apparently fell off the bike while trying to avoid construction obstacles and was struck by a Jeep Liberty, according to Charles Francis, public information officer for Charleston Police. The bicycle was not struck, Francis said.
The driver will not face charges, Francis said.
