Bicyclists killed in crash were Northwestern Mutual workers

Posted:
MUSKEGO, Wis. (AP) -- The two bicyclists killed in a crash in Muskego Saturday were longtime employees at Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co.

Authorities identify the victims as 45-year-old Paul Brown of Franklin and 54-year-old Anthony Oliver of Oak Creek. Police say the two were struck and killed by an SUV as they rode their bikes on Highway 36.

Police tell WDJT-TV both were wearing helmets and riding on the right side of the road.

The Journal Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1RZBSaL) reports Brown worked at Northwestern Mutual for over a decade and served as its director of business technology solutions.

Oliver joined the company in 2001 and worked as an application development director.

Police say the 20-year-old South Milwaukee man who was driving the SUV was arrested on suspicion of homicide by negligent operation of a vehicle.
