A bicyclist fell from a retaining wall after dark Wednesday in New Hope and died, authorities said.
The incident occurred around 10 p.m. near a Midas auto repair shop on Winnetka Avenue at Bass Lake Road.
A caller notified authorities about 10:15 p.m. that a man had fallen from the wall, but officers were unable to locate the rider.
A later call to dispatch said the manager at Midas was with the unconscious man, and officers arrived and started resuscitation efforts that were unsuccessful, police audio said. The bicyclist’s identity has yet to be released.
Police Capt. Scott Slawson described the wall as being at least 3 feet high and the location as “very, very dark.”
Investigators are looking into whether the bicyclist was with other people when he fell.
