SANDY — A bicyclist was killed when he collided with a minivan Sunday night.

Just after 8 p.m., a minivan made a left turn off 700 East into a condominium complex at 8275 South, and a man on a bicycle slammed into the rear portion of the vehicle, said Sandy Police Sgt. Jon Arnold.

Craig Buchi, 58, of Murray, who was wearing a helmet, was taken to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Arnold said the investigation into how the accident happened, including whether the cyclist was visible to the driver, was still being conducted.
