According to officials, a 40-year-old cyclist was killed in San Diego’s Otai Mesa West district after being attacked by an SUV in a crash that police believed was intentional.
The case was sentenced to murder.
Lieutenant Adam Shalki said at a news conference that San Diego police officers answered a call at 11:29 am near Arey Drive and Picador Boulevard, saying there was a possible hit-and-run accident.
An injured man was found on the road next to his bicycle and was taken to a hospital where he was declared dead.
“The San Diego police traffic detective responded to investigate and collect information indicating that the traffic collision may have been intentional,” Shalki said in a statement.
According to Shalki, people at the baseball stadium at the nearby Silver Wing Recreation Center may have witnessed the collision, and the vehicles involved may have been light-colored SUVs.
At this point, there is no more suspicious information, Shalki said. If you have information about the incident, please call the San Diego Murder Unit (619-531-2293) or the Crime Stopper (888-580-8477).
