A bicyclist dies when he's hit by a car last night in Jefferson City's east end.

Eric Krauter, 51, of Slaughter, Louisiana, was riding his bike, pulling a trailer, on the Expressway near the Clark Street exit around 6pm last night when he was hit.

According to police, a car driven by Haily Crabtree, 26, of Springfield, side swiped Krauter knocking him off the road.  He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police were originally called to the scene to check on debris laying in the road, when they found Krauter.

There's no word yet on whether Crabtree, a native of Jefferson City, will face any charges.
