CHP: Alamo man killed in Solano County bicycle crash

The Solano County coroner's office has identified the bicyclist who was killed by a hit-and-run driver Wednesday afternoon as 72-year-old Dan Taylor.

The California Highway Patrol said Taylor was an Alamo resident.

CHP Officer Chris Parker said the initial CHP report that Taylor was riding in a timed interval race is not true.

Taylor was riding east on Putah Creek Road about a mile east of Interstate Highway 505 in Solano County near the Yolo County border, the CHP said.

A westbound vehicle traveling 55-60 mph crossed to the eastbound lane and struck the bicycle around 5 p.m.

Taylor was propelled over the vehicle and landed in an adjacent orchard, the CHP said. He died of multiple internal and head injuries.

The vehicle traveled into the orchard, almost hit a tree and continued traveling west toward Winters, the CHP said.

The CHP continues to look for information about the vehicle, believed to be light in color.
