Bicyclist hit and killed after crash in Carlsbad

Posted: Updated:

CARLSBAD (CNS) - Authorities were working Thursday to determine what led to a crash between a minivan and a bicyclist on a Carlsbad roadway that left the 46-year-old rider dead.

The fatal crash happened shortly after 6:30 p.m. Wednesday along College Boulevard, north of Palomar Airport Road, Carlsbad police Sgt. Scott Meritt said.

Meritt said it appeared the bicyclist, a Carlsbad man, and the minivan were both headed north when they collided, but it was not immediately clear who was at fault.

The 34-year-old man who had been driving the minivan remained at the scene and was not suspected of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

The bicyclist's name was withheld pending notification of kin, Meritt said.

A stretch of northbound College Boulevard was closed for about three hours after the crash.

Anyone with additional information on the crash was asked to call police at (760) 931-2197.
