INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — A bicyclist died Monday after colliding with a Los Angeles County sheriff's patrol car as deputies tried to stop him because they thought he had a gun, authorities said.

The crash happened at about 1:25 a.m. The Sheriff's Department didn't immediately say how many deputies were involved or how the crash occurred. No gun was found and no deputies were hurt, authorities said.

The man's name hasn't been released.

The crash happened about a half-mile from the area where Inglewood police shot and wounded a driver a day earlier.

In that incident, officers stopped the driver at about 2:30 a.m. Sunday. They opened fire after the motorist "led officers to believe that he was arming himself," Lt. James Madia said in a statement.

The man was hospitalized in critical condition, and there was no word Monday on his condition.

His name also was not immediately released.
