MORENO VALLEY, Calif. -

A bicyclist was struck and killed today at a Moreno Valley intersection.

The crash happened at 3:44 p.m. at Northern Dancer Drive and Perris Boulevard, according to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.

A man cycling northbound on Perris was apparently hit from behind by a motorist, who immediately stopped.
