CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

The Charleston County Coroner's Office has identified a 54-year-old bicyclist who was fatally struck by a car on Wadmalaw Island. 

Authorities say John Darrell Jones of Wadmalaw Island died Tuesday night. 

Charleston County Sheriff's Office officials say the accident happened just before 7 p.m. on the 5900 block of Bears Bluff Road. 

Investigators say the driver, Kiel Park, was driving his pickup truck down the road when a person on a bicycle swerved in his path, and they collided. 

Park was arrested for driving under suspension and operating uninsured, the Charleston County Sheriff's Office says. 

The Sheriff's Office Traffic Division and the Charleston County Coroner's office are investigating the incident.
