FOUNTAIN VALLEY (CBS) — A 50-year-old man on a bike was struck and killed Wednesday night in Fountain Valley.

The fatal crash happened near the intersection of Brookhurst Street and Niagara River Avenue about 6:30 p.m., Fountain Valley police Lt. Jim McNeff said.

A woman from La Habra Heights was driving north on Brookhurst Street in a Volkswagen Beetle when the bicyclist crossed Brookhurst Street from Niagara River Avenue, McNeff said.

The bicyclist, who police believe was a transient, was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics, McNeff said.

The driver sustained minor injuries and was taken to a hospital, McNeff said.

Witnesses said the bicyclist was wearing dark clothes and his black bicycle did not have lights or reflectors.
