KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Police in Overland Park, Kansas say a bicyclist has died after being struck by a car Friday.

Emergency crews were called out around 9:30 a.m. to near 135th Street and Caenen Street on reports that a car had struck a bicyclist.

Police identified the victim Monday as 72-year-old Karman Wells of Olathe, Kansas.
