A Schuylkill County teenager who was riding his bike cross country to raise awareness for breast cancer has died after being hit by a car.

19-year-old John Anczarski, of Ringtown, died Tuesday in New Mexico.

He and three friends were riding from Pennsylvania to California as part of a fundraising project they called ''The Pink Pedal.''

Anczarski's aunt tells us one of the riders got a flat tire and Anczarski was in the process of fixing it when he was struck.
