He was riding east on East 25th Street when he passed several cars, failed to stop at the traffic signal at East G Street and went into the intersection, police said. The bike hit the trailer but the truck driver, unaware of what happened, kept going.
The bicyclist was pronounced dead shortly after the 10:30 a.m. accident.
