Authorities say the delivery man was unconscious when police arrived early Wednesday morning. He died a shortl time later in the hospital.
Twenty-four-year-old Kevin Parkhurst told police the delivery van cut him off as he was riding his bicycle. After a verbal altercation broke out, Parkhurst says the delivery driver got a baseball bat from the van.

No charges have been filed.
