Bicylist struck and killed in Atherton crosswalk

A 62-year-old bicyclist was struck by a car and killed while crossing a major thoroughfare in Atherton this morning, a police spokesman
said.

At about 10:35 a.m., the Menlo Park Fire Protection District received numerous 911 calls reporting that a car had hit a man on a bicycle
on southbound El Camino Real at Isabella Avenue, Atherton police Lt. Joe Wade said.

The victim, a resident of unincorporated Redwood City, was pronounced dead at the scene.

A preliminary investigation indicated the bicyclist was in a crosswalk when a southbound Toyota struck him, Wade said.

The driver of the Toyota stopped and was cooperating with investigators.

It does not appear that alcohol played a role in the accident, and it has not been determined whether speed was a factor, Wade said.

Southbound El Camino Real was closed between Watkins and Atherton avenues for about five hours while the accident was investigated.
