Police were called to the scene at about 7:30 p.m. After an investigation, they found there was no evidence that would indicate a collision or that “any other persons or vehicles were involved,” police said.

Deputy Police Chief Mark Duncan said all initial indications were that the man had suffered some kind of medical emergency.

A statement from the family on Thursday said, “His life was an inspiration to us all, and he will forever be in the hearts and minds of his family and friends.”
