A 63-year-old man who rode his bicycle into a foggy Mira Mesa intersection against a red light was fatally struck by a car Monday morning.

The westbound rider was hit by a southbound 1999 Hyundai on Flanders Drive at Camino Ruiz shortly after 5:30 a.m., San Diego police Officer Dan Lasher said.

The severely injured cyclist was taken to a hospital following the crash, but later died, Lasher said.

Lasher said neither drugs nor alcohol were suspected in the crash.
