One of two teenage bicyclists hit by an SUV in western Minnesota after sunset did not survive the collision, authorities said.
The crash occurred shortly before 10 p.m. Tuesday just south of Carlos on County Road 9 NE., the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said.
The driver, a 24-year-old man from nearby Parkers Prairie, remained at the scene and was cooperating with authorities, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Killed was Blake L. Nohre, of Miltona, Minn. Nick A. Lambertson, of Alexandria, Minn., was injured. A third bicyclist in the group, Jayden J. Tatro, of Carlos, Minn., was not struck. All three are 14 years old.
Authorities have not said whether any of the teens were wearing helmets. Nor did they say whether they were riding in a lane of traffic or on the shoulder.
According to the Sheriff’s Office:
The bicyclists were riding south, and two of them were hit by the southbound SUV driver.
Nohre was declared dead at the scene by emergency responders, while Lambertson was taken by air ambulance to HCMC in Minneapolis. His condition was not immediately available.
