    A motorcyclist was killed when he swerved to avoid a vehicle and was struck by another in west Miami-Dade County.
     
    The fatal accident occurred early Sunday when 41-year-old Cristobal Fuentes tried to avoid being hit by a pickup truck along Tamiami Trail but lost control of his bike and hit the vehicle anyway.

    Authorities said Fuentes was thrown from his motorcycle and run over by another car that was not able to stop in time. Fuentes was pronounced dead at Kendall Regional Hospital.

    The crash closed down the busy thoroughfare for several hours.
