MCMILLAN, Wis. (AP) - A Wisconsin bicyclist training for an annual long-distance Iowa bike ride has died after being struck by a car while training for the event.

The Des Moines Register reports (http://bit.ly/1e21Ivv ) that 52-year-old Donna David, of Marshfield, Wisconsin, was cycling Monday on a paved county road in the central Wisconsin town of McMillan just before 6 p.m. when she was hit by a car. She was training for the Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa, which begins Sunday in Sioux City, Iowa.

David was taken by ambulance to Ministry Saint Joseph’s Hospital, where she died.

The Marathon County Sheriff’s Office says the driver of the car has not been charged, but that the investigation into the fatal accident is ongoing.
