A bicyclist was killed when they were in a collision with a semi truck in downtown Minneapolis Wednesday afternoon.

The incident happened near the intersection of North 12th Street and West Linden Avenue at 4:15 p.m., Minneapolis police says.

Both the box truck, which was pulling a construction trailer, and the bicyclist were traveling the same direction along 12th Street towards Hennepin Avenue when the truck driver turned right onto Linden.

The truck struck the bicycle, causing the rider injuries that saw them pronounced dead at the scene.

"The truck driver stopped immediately and is cooperating with investigators," Minneapolis police said.

The incident is under investigation by the Minneapolis PD Traffic Investigation Division.

Details of the victim's identity have not yet been released by police.
