Farkas says Tristan Martinez was riding in the southbound lane when he was struck by a gray Dodge Journey traveling in the same direction.

Martinez suffered life-threatening injuries and was life-flighted to a Colorado hospital, where he was declared dead two days later.

Farkas says Martinez was wearing dark-colored clothing and his bicycle did not appear to have any lighting.

She says the SUV driver, also from Cheyenne, showed no signs of impairment and remained on the scene to assist officers with their investigation.
