PORT CHARLOTTE — A 39-year-old North Port man was killed Friday night when his bicycle was struck by a crashing car in the Parkside area of town, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report.

Howard U. Tomlin was bicycling north on a sidewalk along Elkcam Boulevard at 9:28 p.m., when a 2007 Nissan Maxima driven by David McGovern, 23, of Port Charlotte, also traveling north on Elkcam, attempted to pass an unknown vehicle and lost control, the report states. As the car spun, it slid into the ditch on the east side of Elkcam and overturned, continuing onto the sidewalk, where it reportedly hit the bicycle from behind.
