Authorities Wednesday identified a 38-year-old man who was fatally injured when hit by a car while riding a bicycle in Long Beach.

Michael McIntyre, who was homeless, was struck about 1:30 p.m. on Sept. 10 at Orange Avenue and 52nd Street and died three days later at a hospital, according to the coroner’s office and the Long Beach Police Department.

Upon entering the intersection, the bicyclist made a westbound right turn on 52nd Street, against a red light. The bicyclist was struck by the Chevrolet Cruze entering the intersection on a green light.”

The driver, whose name was withheld, remained at the scene and cooperated with the investigation. She was not arrested.
