The California Highway Patrol is investigating a crash yesterday afternoon on Herrick Avenue that killed a bicyclist.

According to CHP, the cyclist — whose identity is not being released until their family can be notified — was riding northbound on Elk River Road shortly before 5 p.m. when, for reasons yet to be determined, they passed into the intersection with Herrick Avenue and rode directly into the path of an oncoming Dodge Ram truck.

"The bicyclist was struck by the front left of the Dodge, resulting in major injuries," states a CHP incident report, which adds that the cyclist was later pronounced dead at the scene by responding medical personnel.

The driver of the Dodge remained on scene and has cooperated with police, according to the release.

The CHP asks anyone who witnessed the crash, or has related information, to call 822-5981. View the full incident report here.
