CANUTE, Okla. (AP) – 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.
