A 37-year-old South San Francisco man died Monday night, April 10, after the bicycle he was riding collided with a car on Cañada Road near Fioli, according to the California Highway Patrol Redwood City.
The San Mateo County Coroner's Office identified him as Lester Legarda.
The crash caused law enforcement to shut down the road for several hours between Edgewood Road and the Pulgas Water Temple while they investigated.
According to initial reports, an Acura sedan and a cyclist were both traveling north on Cañada Road when the crash occurred around 5 p.m. The cause of the collision has not yet been determined and is currently under investigation.
The 22-year-old driver of car and the passenger were both taken to the hospital as a precaution, according to CHP.
Authorities reopened Cañada Road shortly before 8:30 p.m on Monday after closing following the fatal crash earlier in the evening.
Witnesses are asked to contact the Redwood City Area Office at 650-779-2700 with any information regarding Monday night's crash.
This is the second time in less than two weeks that a cyclist has died in Redwood City after a collision involving a motorist.
On March 31, a cyclist on Veterans Boulevard was killed in a hit-and-run collision. Police are still investigating that incident.
