David A. Vangorkom, 38, Seneca, died when the bicycle he was riding veered into the path of a 2017 Peterbilt driven by Danny H. Heydenreich, 61, of Huntington, Arkansas.

Both were northbound when Vangorkom was struck in the roadway by the semi.

The crash happened at 9:43 p.m. on I-49 one mile north of Neosho and Vangorkom was pronounced dead at the scene by Newton County Deputy Coroner Jerry Deems.

This marks Missouri State Highway Patrol Troop D's 51st fatality in 2019.
