CALUMET COUNTY, Wis. (WBAY) - A 60-year-old bicyclist was killed Thursday morning after being hit by a vehicle in the Village of Harrison.

At 7:02 a.m., Calumet County deputies were called to the scene at Old Highway Road near Lakeview Court.

Investigators say the driver of the vehicle, a 16-year-old Kaukauna girl, was traveling behind the bicyclist when she struck him from behind. They were both headed east.

“It’s believed the brightness of the sun was a contributing factor for the crash,” officials say.

The teen driver is cooperating with the investigation.

No names were released. Officials say the bicyclist was from Menasha.
