SARASOTA, FL- Victor Harley Foreman, 20, of Sarasota, was killed on Wednesday, when the bicycle he was riding collided with a van at the intersection of Central Avenue and 10th Street in Sarasota at about 4:30 p.m.

Officers believe the van was traveling eastbound on 10th Street and came to the intersection of Central Avenue.  The van had the right of way and was proceeding into the intersection.  Foreman, on his bicycle, failed to obey the traffic signal of a red light at 10th Street and Central Avenue and collided with the van.

Foreman was taken to Blake Medical Center with serious injuries and was later pronounced dead at the hospital.  The driver of the van, Eric Goretcki, 61, of Sarasota, was not injured.  Drugs and alcohol do not appear to be a factor in the crash.

The crash remains under investigation.  A complete traffic crash report will not be available for several weeks.
