COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Police in central Ohio say a bicyclist riding against traffic on a major highway in the middle of the night was struck by a car and later died.

Columbus police say they started getting calls around 12:40 a.m. Thursday about a man bicycling southbound in northbound lanes of Interstate 71, on a segment of the highway near the state fairgrounds and Ohio State University.

Police say a car struck 24-year-old Matthew Goodwin on his bicycle, which was then hit separately by a second vehicle. Police say the Galloway man was taken to a hospital and was pronounced dead.

There was no immediate word on why he was riding along the highway or how he ended up there.
