The bicyclists were hit from behind, according to the highway patrol. Scurlock was pronounced dead at the scene. Simou was transported to UNC Hospital and is in the intensive care unit.

At this time, there are no witnesses. The suspect vehicle is described as having front-end and windshield damage. The make and model of the vehicle is unknown.

This is the second vehicle-on-pedestrian accident in two days in Chapel Hill. 

Lisa Renee Baldwin, 41, was hit by a vehicle Wednesday around 8:24 p.m. near the intersection of Fordham Blvd. and S. Estes Drive.
