A bicyclist is dead after a Thursday morning crash in St. Petersburg.

The accident occurred at 64th Street South and Bougainvilla Avenue South before 7:30 a.m. Officers said 64-year-old Sheldon Wagner, Jr. was riding his bicycle northbound on the west side of the southbound lane along 64th Street South.
