CANUTE, Oklahoma — A bicyclist from Florida was killed and another was injured when they were struck by a car on Highway 152 in western Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said Thursday that 25-year-old Patrick Wanninkhof of Key Biscayne, Florida, was dead at the scene of the accident and 22-year-old Bridget Anderson of Port Orange, Florida, was hospitalized in Oklahoma City in stable condition.

An OHP report says the two were westbound on the highway when they were struck by a westbound car. The report says the driver of the car said she was distracted by looking at her phone when she crashed into the bicyclists.
