Police: Bike trick rider hit, killed by car

WATERLOO, Ill. (AP) -- A bicyclist was killed when he was hit by a car in front of the Monroe County courthouse, where he had been doing trick riding.

Authorities say 27-year-old Jimmy Mullins of Red Bud died Monday at a hospital after suddenly riding his 20-inch BMX bike into the path of a car in Waterloo.

Mullins had been performing tricks on his bike on the courthouse's lawn.

Police say the car's driver was a Missouri man who was in Waterloo on a fishing trip. He won't be charged.
