The cyclist who died after a collision with a semi truck Wednesday afternoon in Minneapolis has been identified.

Alexander David Wolf, 30, of Minneapolis, died Wednesday from multiple blunt force injuries in the crash, according to a news release from the Hennepin County Medical Examiner.


Police said Wolf and a commercial box truck pulling a construction trailer were both traveling on 12th Street toward Hennepin Avenue when the truck turned right onto Linden Avenue and struck the cyclist.

Wolf was pronounced dead at the scene.

Dozens of people from the group Safe Streets Save Lives gathered Friday evening to create a human wall along a bike lane in the area where Wolf was killed. They say they want the city to install more barriers to keep vehicles out of bike lanes.

"Obviously some paint on the road doesn't do the trick as evidence of this cyclist death," Safe Streets Save Lives member Tim Pate told KSTP in an interview.

The crash remains under investigation.
