A 28-year-old Joplin woman died from injuries sustained when a vehicle struck the bicycle she was riding Monday night at the entrance to the Walmart store on West Seventh Street.

Police said Donellan was riding a bicycle westbound in the eastbound lane of traffic when she lost control of the bike and was struck by an eastbound vehicle driven by Anna Beal, 18, of Joplin. The accident remains under investigation by the Police Department's major crash team.
