A bicyclist was struck by a car and killed Monday morning on St. Charles Avenue, according to The Times Picayune/The New Orleans Advocate.  

The accident happened near the corner of St. Charles and Polymnia Street, on the edge of the Lower Garden District, when he was struck by a motorist around just after 5:05 a.m.  That man was in critical condition when paramedics took him to University Medical Center.  He later died.

Officials didn’t immediately identify the cyclist. But in a joint statement, cyclist advocacy groups Bike Uneasy and Stolen Bikes NOLA said he was Robert “Hog” Blair, a “fixture, known by everyone” along that portion of St. Charles Avenue.
