A 58-year-old Bradenton man was killed in a three-vehicle accident at 2 p.m. Friday in the 6400 block of Verna Bethany Road, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Donald Plummer slowed his 1997 Chevrolet Astro to allow a bicyclist to pass when a 2016 Ford Fusion driven by a 23-year-old Myakka City woman struck his Astro from behind, according to FHP.
The Astro was pushed into the southbound lane where a 2011 Ford F-350 truck struck its left front. The driver was pronounced deceased on scene.
Alcohol is not suspected as a factor in the accident.
Charges are pending an investigation.
