A 27-year-old man died after being hit by a pickup truck while cycling just east of Letellier, Man., on Sunday.

The cyclist, a man from Roseau River First Nation, was reported to have swerved in front of oncoming traffic when he was struck, RCMP said.

His name is not being released to the public.

The 50-year-old man who was driving the truck, and a 35-year-old woman passenger, were not injured.   No charges are being considered at this time, RCMP said.
