CARLSBAD, Calif. - A bicyclist who apparently veered into traffic on Carlsbad Boulevard was struck by a car and killed Wednesday, police said.
The unidentified bicyclist, a 59-year-old woman, was traveling southbound in the 4500 block of Carlsbad Boulevard between Sequoia Avenue and Tierra Del Oro Street when the collision occurred around 10:30 a.m., said Carlsbad police Lt. Greg Koran.
The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
The Ford Fiesta's 64-year-old driver stopped at the scene, Koran said.
Vehicles travel at a relatively high speed along that stretch of roadway along the shoreline.
