A bicycle rider in Walker County, Ga., died Tuesday afternoon from injuries suffered in a collision with a vehicle.

Melinda Brewer was riding north on Highway 193 near Faith Baptist Church of Chickamauga when she was struck by a Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The route she was traveling was part of the Ironman Chattanooga bike route.

Georgia State Patrol's specialized collision reconstruction team was still investigating the incident Wednesday, but officers believe the vehicle had been traveling south on Highway 193 and was turning left onto Prospect Road when the collision occurred. The driver stopped.

An officer said Brewer was wearing a helmet.
