— Police have identified the bicyclist struck and killed by a tractor-trailer Friday in a Saratoga Springs intersection.

Police said Justin Price, 20, of Clifton Park. was riding east on Lake Avenue when he was struck by a truck driving in the same direction about 5:30 p.m. at the intersection of Weibel and Lake avenues. Price was treated at the scene and airlifted to Albany Medical Center, but died later that night, according to police.

The truck driver was not injured and has cooperated with the investigation, police said. Lake Avenue was shut down until 8:30 p.m. to allow police to conduct an accident reconstruction.

A full account of the accident, including driver information, will not be released until Monday, but police do not believe alcohol or speed were a factor in the accident.
