CHULA VISTA (CNS) - A car struck and killed a 77-year-old man Thursday as he rode his bicycle in front of a South Bay primary school.
The motorist was exiting a parking lot at Rice Elementary School on Fourth Avenue in Chula Vista when her vehicle hit the bicyclist shortly after 8:30 a.m., according to police.
Medics took the man to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead about an hour later, Lt. Eric Thunberg said. His name was withheld pending notification of his family.
It was unclear if the driver, an employee at the school, will face charges over the accident, though the bicyclist apparently had the right of way at the time of the collision, the lieutenant said.
There were no indications that the woman was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, according to Thunberg.
