Tampa, Florida (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 (10/1). 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.
