A bicyclist weaving through traffic on Highway 101 in Marin County was struck by a car and killed Saturday night.
On Sunday, the Marin County Sheriff’s Office identified the man as 42-year-old Anthony Letigre of Greenbrae.
CHP Officer Andrew Barclay said dispatchers received calls around 7:30 p.m. reporting a man in dark clothing riding a bicycle on Highway 101 southbound between the Madera Boulevard and Paradise Drive exits in Corte Madera. The man was veering across all five lanes of traffic.
Minutes later, while the first caller was still on the phone with dispatchers, a call came in reporting that the bicyclist had been struck by a car, Barclay said, and was lying in the middle of the freeway.
Letigre was pronounced dead on the scene. A driver who struck the man stopped and cooperated with officers, Barclay said.
Little information was available about why the man was riding on the freeway or how far he’d ridden before he was struck. The CHP is continuing to investigate.
All lanes were closed for investigation until 9 p.m., when a single lane opened. All lanes were reopened at 10 p.m.
