MACOMB, Ill. (WGEM) -

A Macomb man died Friday afternoon after he fell off his bicycle into the path of a semi-truck, according to McDonough County Coroner Eric Jameson.

Nicholas Foxall, 24, was traveling south on Bonham Street at approximately 3:40 p.m. and tried to take a right turn onto E. Jackson Street. When Foxall attempted to make the turn, he fell off the bike into the path of the semi-truck and was run over the by the back end of the vehicle.

"In my opinion, this was an accident in its truest form," Jameson said. "There was nothing the truck driver could have done."

Foxall was pronounced dead at the scene.
