NBC 4 New York

Authorities say a correctional officer at the New Hampshire State Prison died after the bicycle he was riding was hit by a vehicle.

The crash happened Wednesday afternoon in Concord.

Preliminary reports show the bicycle ridden by 41-year-old Patrick Bettens, of Concord, was traveling north when it was struck by a silver Honda Odyssey.

Bettens later died at a hospital.

Corrections Commissioner Helen Hanks said Bettens served as a mentor for many.

The crash is under investigation.
