Deadly bicycle accident

FLOYD COUNTY, Iowa – A man has passed away after being hit by a car on his bike.  Just last night 55 year old Brian Lauterbach was riding bike along Highway 14 near March Avenue in Floyd County when he was struck by a vehicle.  He was later pronounced dead.  The driver of the vehicle suffered no injures.  Local state trooper Mike Haugen says he’s hoping everyone driving is remembering to be aware of their surroundings while on the road.

“One be aware of your speed at all times.  Two, don’t drive your vehicle after you’ve been drinking, and three don’t be the distracted driver that’s texting or posting something on Facebook that’s not that important,” said Haugen.

Haugen says the investigation is still on-going.
