GARDNERVILLE, Nev. (AP) - Authorities say a bicyclist struck by a vehicle driven by a Douglas County judge has died.

The Nevada Highway Patrol says 61-year-old Joseph A. Longo of Gardnerville died Tuesday from injuries suffered in the Aug. 20 accident.

Investigators say Longo was riding on Pine Nut Road when he was struck by a vehicle driven by District Judge Michael Gibbons around 11 a.m.

The Record-Courier newspaper (http://bit.ly/193BHV4 ) reports Gibbons' lawyer says the judge is "deeply saddened" to hear of Longo's death.

Investigators say both Longo and Gibbons were traveling west on Pine Nut Road. The judge was making a right turn onto East Valley Road when the right rear of his vehicle struck the bike.

Longo was not wearing a helmet and suffered serious injuries.

The NHP is handling the investigation.
