TEXARKANA — The Texarkana Texas Police Department says a Texarkana, Texas, man was struck by a vehicle in the 1900 block of South Bishop Road as he rode a bicycle at approximately 4:15 a.m. Tuesday.

According to TTPD, traffic investigators determined that 29-year-old Joshua Kendricks was riding a bicycle along the center line of South Bishop Road when he was struck by a southbound 1995 Chevrolet pickup that was exiting at the U.S.-59 exit from Interstate 369/Jarvis Parkway.

Police say another man, who had been walking along with Kendricks, was not injured.

The pickup was driven by 47-year-old Thommy Belote of Bivens, Texas, police say.  Due to that area of South Bishop Road not being lighted and Kendricks wearing all dark clothing, Belote was unable to see Kendricks as he exited from Interstate 369, according to police.

Police say Kendricks was transported to Christus St. Michael Hospital where he is listed in critical condition.

No citations have been issued, according to police.
