A 59-year-old motorcyclist was struck by a mini RV and killed Wednesday morning in Northwest Jacksonville, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

Vanlandingham died at the scene. He was wearing a helmet, police said.

Moncrief Road was partially blocked for several hours.

Police said the 39-year-old driver of the RV was not injured and charges are pending.
