1 Dead, 2 Injured After Vehicle Collides with Cyclists
IONA, Idaho (AP) — Authorities say one cyclist died and another was critically injured after a vehicle collided with them while they were riding in a group in the Idaho Falls area.
Bonneville County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Bryan Lovell said in a news release that authorities responded to the crash Wednesday evening on Highway 26. Lovell says a 33-year-old Idaho Falls woman was driving a vehicle west when she hit two women riding in the same direction. Authorities say one of the bicyclists, a 25-year-old woman from Michigan, was pronounced dead at a hospital.
The other, a 22-year-old Virginia woman, was in the hospital in critical condition. The driver was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The bicyclists were part of an out-of-state group riding across the country. Authorities are investigating.
