Former GOP Senator Mike Enzi of Wyoming has now passed away after being involved in a bicycle accident on Friday which left him seriously injured.

As The Hill reports:

Former Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) died after sustaining serious injuries from a bicycle accident on Friday, his family said late Monday.

Enzi, 77, was known as one of the more conservative lawmakers during his time on Capitol Hill, where he served for four terms in the Senate before retiring late last year. The senator served as chairman of the Senate Budget Committee and Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee.

The former senator was involved in drafting more than 100 bills signed by four different presidents during his tenure in the Senate, according to the Casper Star-Tribune.

Tributes poured in for Enzi early Tuesday.

Enzi is survived by his wife and three children.
