Cyclist Killed in Monroe County

MONROE, Mich. (AP) -- Monroe County authorities are seeking the driver of a white minivan they believe was responsible for fatally striking a 51-year-old bicyclist in Monroe.

Sgt. Angerer tells The Monroe Evening News that Anthony Stemen of Newport was riding an adult three-wheeled bicycle about 1:30 p.m. Sunday, when he was hit from behind by a white Chevrolet Ventura that fled.

Stemen was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Angerer said the van has a broken windshield, and speed may have been a factor.

An investigation is ongoing.
