A cyclist died after a motorist went into diabetic shock and hit him Monday afternoon at 1300 South and State Street, police said.

Sidney Mabine, 58, was thrown 50 to 60 feet when the northbound vehicle hit him about 4 p.m. while traveling about 40 mph, said Salt Lake City police Lt. Melody Gray. Mabine died Monday night.

The motorist continued driving north until an officer pulled her over, Gray said. The driver, 51, was "totally incoherent" and apparently did not know she had hit someone, Gray said. Her blood glucose level tested at 32; the CDC reports the normal range as 70 to 140. She was taken to a hospital for treatment.
