According to a report from the Iowa State Patrol, a car struck a bicycle on Friday, six miles west of Manson on Highway 7. The car hit the rear tire of the bicycle, throwing the rider into another cyclist. The first biker was killed, and the second was transported to a medical facility for treatment of minor injuries. The crash is currently under further investigation.
