Bicyclist Killed in Kandiyohi County Identified 16 Oct 12

A semi struck and killed a bicyclist on Highway 71 south of Belgrade early this morning (Tuesday).

The State Patrol says 38-year-old Richard Vos of Belgrade was dead at the scene.

Officials in the Brooten-Belgrade-Elrosa School District say Vos was a faculty member.

Superintendent Matthew Bullard Vos was a high school math teacher, junior high track and field coach and the head wrestling coach at BBE.

Bullard says everyone knows each other in the small district and the death will be hard to take.

The State Patrol says Vos was struck by a semi driven by 50-year-old Brian Anderson of Belgrade just before five this morning on Highway 71 near the intersection with County Road 34, about three miles south of Belgrade in Kandiyohi County.
