Police have identified the bicyclist struck and killed by a tractor-trailer Friday in a Saratoga Springs intersection.

Police said Justin Price, 20, of Clifton Park. was riding east on Lake Avenue when he was struck by a truck driving in the same direction about 5:30 p.m. at the intersection of Weibel and Lake avenues. Price was treated at the scene and airlifted to Albany Medical Center, but died later that night, according to police.
