A 52-year-old Lincoln man died Saturday evening after his bicycle was struck by a Jeep Cherokee just south of Lincoln, says the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office.
Around 5:30 p.m., Randall Gibson was riding his bicycle eastbound on West Sprague Road east of Southwest 58th Street — within the legal distance of the white road line — when a Jeep Cherokee driving the same direction struck him.
Southwest Rural Fire and Rescue and the sheriff's office responded. Gibson was pronounced dead at the scene, according to a release.
The driver, Zygmunt Spicha, 66, was arrested for driving under the influence, a misdemeanor; and motor vehicle homicide, a felony.
Gibson was wearing his bicycle helmet and Spicha wore a seat belt and had no injuries, officials say. West Sprague Road is a two-lane, asphalt road with no paved shoulders.

This is the third day in a row there's been a serious bicycle-car crash in Lincoln.
Thursday, a bicyclist broke four ribs and a bone in his leg after he was hit by a drunk driver near 33rd and A streets.
Friday, a cyclist was taken to the hospital with potentially life-threatening injuries after a car struck him by Old Cheney Road and 31st Street.
