Cyclist Dies In Fatal Menlo Park Accident

Sand Hill Road again ... a 67-year old cyclist was killed this morning when riding east-bound on Sand Hill Rd; he was struck by a car which was also heading east-bound, west of the 280 intersection. KTVU Channel 2 just reported that the driver of the car was an 87-year old man; the KTVU video coverage places the accident approximately here, roughly 1 mile west of where MaryAnn Levenson was hit and injured by a car on Dec 23, 2006. This morning's tragic accident doesn't help me in feeling less edgy when riding this stretch of Sand Hill Rd, between Santa Cruz Ave and Whiskey Hill Rd. Be safe out there.

Update 5/27: the cyclist has been identified as Rodney Smith from Portola Valley; Smith served as CEO for Altera Corporation from 1983 to 2000.
