A bicyclist was killed in a crash in north Minneapolis late Tuesday, after apparently failing to stop for a stop sign.

The crash happened at Dowling Avenue N and Humboldt Avenue N. around 11:45 p.m.

A preliminary investigation found a vehicle was traveling westbound on Dowling Avenue North, while the bicyclist – a man – was traveling northbound on Humboldt.

The bicyclist failed to stop at a stop sign and was struck by the vehicle. He died at the scene.

A second bicyclist present at the scene was not injured. According to MPD, the driver is complying with all investigations.

There is no indication alcohol or drugs were involved in the crash. At this stage it's also not clear what speed the vehicle was traveling at.

According to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, pedestrians and bicyclists comprised of 12 percent of all traffic fatalities between 2013 and 2017.

Of these fatalities, 69 percent occurred in urban areas.
