A retired New Hampshire police sergeant was struck and killed by a motorist while on her bike training for an event to honor fallen law enforcement officers.

Fifty-nine-year-old Donna Briggs, of Derry, was found dead Tuesday night down an embankment off Route 125.

Kingston police said it appears Briggs was struck from behind by a southbound vehicle.

Video from a nearby business shows that it was a dark colored vehicle, and that the crash happened at 11:37 a.m.

Briggs was training for an interstate bike ride that raises funds for officers killed in the line of duty.
