Authorities say a driver has struck and killed a bicyclist who was riding along a southern Missouri highway after nightfall.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the crash happened around 10:10 p.m. Tuesday about a ½ mile (8.05 kilometers) east of Lebanon. The patrol says the 18-year-old driver was unable to see 47-year-old Ronnie Miller because it was dark. Miller was pronounced dead at the scene, and the driver was transported to a hospital with minor injuries.
