GROOM, Texas (AP) - A California bicyclist on a nationwide journey to draw attention to the rights of U.S. military veterans has died in a Texas traffic accident.

The Texas Department of Public Safety on Tuesday identified the victim as 48-year-old Stephen Michael Clift of San Diego, California.

DPS says Clift was struck Thursday night by a vehicle on eastbound Interstate 40 near Groom. Clift was transported to a hospital in Amarillo, where he died on Friday.

Cpl. John Gonzalez says the traffic wreck appears to have been an accident. No charges were immediately filed against the driver.
