IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — An 83-year-old cyclist has died after he was struck by a car near Iowa City on Monday morning.

The Iowa State Patrol says David Lorentz Schuldt has died from injuries he suffered in the accident, which remains under investigation.

A report from the patrol says that Schuldt was struck by a car on Old Highway 218 just south of Iowa City.

The car was driven by a 26-year-old Kalona woman, who says she was unable to move over to the left due to traffic in the adjacent lane.

Schuldt was taken by ambulance to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics but later pronounced dead.
