JACKSONVILLE -

A bicyclist was hit by a vehicle Tuesday night in Jacksonville at about 10:46 p.m. The wreck happened just across the street from Southwest Elementary School on Highway 53, according to officials.

The bicyclist was identified as Thomas Marshall, 40, of Grandy. He was airlifted to New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington, police said.

At last check, he was listed in critical condition.

The driver was identified as Jerry Rochelle, 62, of Jacksonville. Police say there will be no charges against Rochelle because the bicyclist did not have the proper headlights and taillights on his bike.
