Davis bicyclist killed when hit twice by vehicles

A bicyclist died after he was struck twice by vehicles near Davis Sunday night.

He was identified by the California Highway Patrol as Terry Tanner, 71, of Davis.

Tanner was riding on County Road 99 north of Covell Boulevard at about 9:45 p.m. in the middle of the southbound traffic lane when a car going in the same direction hit him, according to the California Highway Patrol. The 40-year-old motorist, who was traveling at about 55 mph at the time of the crash, later told the CHP that he did not see the bicyclist.

The force of the collision sent the bike onto a grassy shoulder of the road. Tanner was thrown onto the car's windshield and roof.

The bicyclist then came to rest in the southbound lane. The car driver stopped and attempted to prevent an oncoming pickup from hitting the bicyclist but he was unsuccessful.

Neither drugs nor alcohol are suspected to be factors in the crash. The collision is under investigation.
