A Danville bicyclist died from injuries sustained in a crash with a car on Crow Canyon Road near Diablo Vista Park late Tuesday afternoon.
The name of the 55-year-old cyclist is being withheld pending notification of family, according to Danville police Lt. Allan Shields.
The incident occurred just before 4:40 p.m. when a teal 1997 Toyota Avalon traveling northbound on Crow Canyon Road collided with the bicyclist at the intersection of Tassajara Ranch Drive, Shields said.
The cyclist was airlifted to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek and later pronounced dead as a result of injuries suffered in the crash, according to Shields.
The driver of the Avalon, whose name has not been released, remained at the scene and fully cooperated with police, the lieutenant said.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation, and the Danville Police Department's traffic unit was still at the scene late Tuesday night investigating the incident, according to Shields.
