A man who did PR for events like July's Philadelphia Freedom concert, has died after falling from his bike and being hit by a car.

Tom McNally also was involved when the City of Brotherly Love presented Elton with its Humanitarian Award.

47 years old, he was the Commerce Department's Communications Director. Prior to this, Tom was the spokesman for the Department of Licenses and Inspections and Free Library of Philadelphia.

Mayor John Street said he performed his duties ''with passion and professionalism, inspiring all who had the pleasure to know him.''
