Bicyclist killed was a teacher

The bicyclist who was killed Thursday after she was hit by a van has been identified as 43-year-old Barbara Tronnier, a Las Vegas school teacher and mother of two.

She was an avid cyclist who rode to work every day, according to her husband, Dave Tronnier. She was hit while riding Thursday to Cadwallader Middle School in northeast Las Vegas.

Police said the driver of a van didn't see Tronnier on her bicycle and was not immediately charged in the crash.
