A Vanguard Village resident in Tamarac was killed Monday morning when he collided with a van on McNab Road just west of 81 Street.

BSO homicide detectives say that Oscar G. Aleman, 82, was riding his bicycle southbound across McNab around 8:30 am when he was hit by a 2004 Chevrolet Express driven by Serge Gharakhanian, 45, of Coral Springs. Gharakhanian had been driving eastbound on McNab Road.

Tamarac Fire Rescue and Broward Sheriff’s Office Fire Rescue responded to the scene, and airlifted Aleman to Broward Health Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
