A bicyclist has died after he was struck by multiple vehicles in Stamford on Friday night.

Officers said the 19-year-old Stamford resident was riding his bicycle northbound on Hazard Avenue around 10:30 p.m. when he was struck by a vehicle. The impact with the vehicle caused the bicyclist to be thrown from the bicycle into the road, authorities added.

While in the road, investigators said a second vehicle then hit the bicyclist.

The bicyclist was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, according to police. He was later pronounced dead at Stamford Hospital. His identity has not been released.

Both vehicles initially stopped at the scene, police said, but the driver of the second vehicle left before talking to officers. He was found a short time later and was interviewed, officers said. The driver of the first vehicle stayed at the scene and spoke with police.

At this time, no charges have been filed and the investigation is ongoing.
