A Kissimmee woman, who was allegedly driving drunk, hit and killed a bicyclist in St. Cloud early Thursday morning.

Megan Marie McGath, 28, was arrested and charged with DUI manslaughter by the Florida Highway Patrol.

According to an FHP report, McGath was driving a 1997 Honda Civic northbound on Canoe Creek Road at about 2 a.m. For an unknown reason, the Honda left the roadway and drove onto the east shoulder of the road, hitting a 50-year-old man riding a bicycle. The victim, who was not identified pending notification of next of kin, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Neither McGath, nor a passenger in the Honda, were injured.

McGath was booked into the Osceola County Jail. The incident remains under investigation.
