When vehicle and bicycle collide, the results are usually bad for the cyclist, as happened Friday morning, May 25, on Sand Hill Road just west of Interstate 280.
A green 1995 four-door Volvo driven by a Woodside man in his 80s struck and killed a cyclist in his 50s at about 9:40 a.m., the California Highway Patrol reported. Both vehicles were eastbound.
Medics from the Menlo Park and Woodside fire protection districts treated the cyclist at the scene, but he was pronounced dead at 10:05 a.m., police said. The driver was not injured.
The San Mateo County Coroner's Office will not release identifying information about the victim until after they have notified his next of kin.
The CHP report did not include information such as whether the cyclist was wearing a helmet and the speed of the vehicles.
The CHP is investigating the incident and is asking witnesses to call Officer McDonough at 369-6261.
