The North Carolina Highway Patrol said a Pittsboro police officer found Ivin Levander Scurlock, 41, of Carrboro, and Alexandria Nicole Simou, 40, of Chapel Hill, in the middle of the road on U.S. 15-501 just outside Chapel Hill city limits at approximately 11:30 p.m. Thursday.

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.
