Elderly Cyclist Killed by Hit & Run Outside Winters – CHP Seeks Witnesses
On Wednesday, March 26, 2014 just before 5 pm, a 71 year-old man from Alamo, Calif was riding a bicycle eastbound on Putah Creek Road east of I-505. He was preparing for a timed interval race through a long stretch of straight roadway that bisects orchards in the area.
A currently unknown vehicle was being driven westbound toward the bicyclist at 55 to 60 MPH. For an unknown reason the vehicle crossed over into the eastbound lane and struck the bicyclist, propelling the rider over the vehicle and onto the dirt in an adjacent orchard. The bicycle rider sustained fatal injuries from the impact.
The vehicle continued into the orchard nearly striking a tree, and was then driven from the scene in a westerly direction toward Winters.
There were no apparent witnesses to the collision, but evidence collected at the scene indicates the suspect vehicle is a light colored vehicle but the make and model are unknown.
If anyone has information regarding this collision please contact the California Highway Patrol in Fairfield at (707) 428-2100.
