CHANDLER, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a bicyclist who was seriously injured when he was hit from behind by a car in Chandler has died.

Chandler police say 62-year-old Raymon Granillo was injured in the early morning hours of June 17 while on a bike ride and he died two days later.

They say Granillo was wearing a bicycle helmet at the time of the crash.

Police say a 22-year-old man was driving the vehicle that struck Granillo.

Investigators don't believe impairment, excessive speed or driver distraction were factors in the accident.

Police say their investigation is ongoing.
