Gulf Breeze, Florida (AP) --
A Panhandle man on a cross-country bike ride to raise awareness and funds for victims of this year's massive Gulf oil spill has been struck and killed by a passing vehicle.
Roger Grooters began his ride across America Sept. 10 in
Oceanside, Calif. The 66-year-old man's family tells the Pensacola
News Journal that he was just days from finishing his 3,200-mile
journey when he was hit by a truck outside of Panama City on
Wednesday morning (Oct. 6).
The funeral is planned for Monday in Gulf Breeze near Pensacola
