The owner of a popular Baltimore bar and restaurant was killed over the weekend in a bicycle accident in Ocean City, according to the Associated Press.

Patrick "Scunny" McCusker, 49, died Friday evening. He owned the Mexican restaurant Nacho Mama's in Baltimore's Canton neighborhood. McCusker was the spark of the revitalized community, Maryland Sen. Barbara Mikulski said in a tweet yesterday.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said in a statement that the neighborhood known for its restaurants and bars wouldn't be what it is today without small-business pioneers like McCusker. 

McCusker was also well known in Ocean City, where he worked in the summer as a teen and young adult. Ocean City Police say the accident, which occurred on the Coastal Highway at 132nd Street, is under investigation.
