Charlie Pink Jr., 62, at right, was riding his bike south in the 8800 block of Cameron Road at 9:35 p.m. when he attempted to turn left onto a side street and was struck by a northbound Dodge Caravan. Pink was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Caravan was not injured, police said.

Alcohol and speed did not appear to be factors in the crash, police said, and Pink was wearing a helmet. It appears that none of the lights on the bike were operational, officials said, adding that no charges are expected to be filed.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call detectives at 974-4724.
