IONA, Idaho (AP) - Authorities say one cyclist died and another was critically injured after a vehicle collided with them while they were riding in a group in the Idaho Falls area.

Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Bryan Lovell said in a news release that authorities responded to the crash Wednesday evening on Highway 26.

Lovell says a 33-year-old Idaho Falls woman was driving a vehicle west when she hit two women riding in the same direction.

Authorities say one of the bicyclists, a 22-year-old woman from Virginia, was pronounced dead at a hospital. The other, a 25-year-old Michigan woman, was in the hospital in critical condition.

The driver was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The bicyclists were part of an out-of-state group riding across the country.

Authorities are investigating.
