MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the bicyclist who was struck near Chaska last month and later died.

Sixty-six-year-old John Dyste was hit by a driver Aug. 31 near the intersection of county roads 40 and 11. Authorities have not explained the circumstances leading up to the crash.
