33-Year-Old Bicyclist Found Dead near Motel 6 and River Drive

 
LAKE TAHOE, CA (June 27, 2018) – A bicyclist was killed Wednesday morning following a suspected hit-and-run collision on Highway 50, in South Lake Tahoe.
 
According to the South Lake Tahoe Police, they received a call at about 5:45 AM regarding an adult male found unresponsive in a ditch. Reports stated that the victim was found by construction workers off the eastbound side of the US Highway 50, between Motel 6 and River Drive.
 
In the preliminary investigation, the evidence suggested that the incident was a result of a fatal collision between a vehicle and a bicycle. An unspecified vehicle was heading eastbound in the lane closest to the sidewalk when it struck the 33-year-old bicyclist. The vehicle fled from the scene, and there is currently no description of the hit-and-run driver and vehicle involved.
 
Authorities arrived at the scene and pronounced the bicyclist dead. The identity of the deceased bicyclist was not immediately released to the public. Any witnesses with additional information are asked to contact the CHP in South Lake Tahoe, by calling (530) 577-1001.
