PORT ORANGE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a man who was rear-ended by a police cruiser while riding a scooter-style motorcycle last month has died.

The Florida Highway Patrol reports that 39-year-old Andrew McIlvain died Sunday.

FHP says 27-year-old Officer Silvio Portillo was driving his marked patrol car Dec. 21 when the front of the vehicle hit the back of the motorcycle.

Officials say McIlvain was thrown off the motorcycle. He wasn’t wearing a helmet.

The officer was treated minor injuries, and officials at his department say he’s been on paid administrative leave since the crash.

FHP says the crash remains under investigation, and charges are pending.
