A bike rider was killed in the the Davis Double Century ride after being run over by a truck in Solano County.
The biker, whose name has not been released, was run over at the intersection of Tremont Road and Sparling Lane around 5:10 a.m. early Saturday morning. According to SFGate, the rider was on Tremont Road and rode into the path of an oncoming tractor-trailer that could not stop in time.
According to the report, the rider was on Tremont Road, which has a stop sign at the intersection, whereas Sparling Lane does not. The rider reportedly did not stop.
The rider, described only as a 50-year old from Rocklin, was run over and pronounced dead at the scene. The crash occurred in Dixon, only six miles from the race's start in Davis.
Alcohol has been ruled out as a factor in the crash.
