LAURENS, Iowa (KTIV) -- Funeral services have been set for a Siouxland high school teacher who was hit by a car while riding his bike.
Alan Petersen's funeral will be Saturday at 2:00 at Laurens-Marathon School in Laurens. A visitation will also be held from 10:00 until 2:00, and a Masonic Rite will be at 1:00. Both will be held at the school as well.
Petersen was a science teacher at Laurens-Marathon School. On Wednesday night, he went for a bike ride to get ready for RAGBRAI. He was riding along Highway 10 just outside of Marathon when he was hit by a car driven by a former student.
Authorities say the driver couldn't see Petersen because of the blinding light from the setting sun.
