A cyclist was hit and killed by a car Monday afternoon on a two lane road in Parker.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office says the crash occurred on Hess Road near Double Angel Road.

The cyclist has not yet been identified by the Douglas County coroner, who is conducting an autopsy.

A spokesperson for the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office could not give details about the circumstances surrounding the crash, but did say charges are pending for the driver while investigators await the coroner’s report and a few more details from their probe into the apparent accident.

Hess Road was closed near where the crash occurred for hours Monday afternoon.

It has since reopened.
