A 67-year-old man died Thursday morning after he was hit by a car while riding a bicycle, police said.

The crash happened at the intersection of Bay Area Boulevard and West Main Street about 6:15 a.m., League City Police Department spokesman Kelly Williamson said.

The man was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police did not immediately provide details about the death other than that it's not being investigated as a crime as of Thursday morning, Williamson said.

"There's no reason to believe any type of illegal activity happened," he said.

Police have identified the crash victim but are not releasing his name until his next of kin have been notified, Williamson said.
