A bicyclist killed yesterday during a Highland traffic collision was a 27-year-old professional cyclist from Ontario, according to San Bernardino County coroner's officials.
Jorge Alvarado was riding along the west shoulder of Greenspot Road when he was hit at 9:52 a.m. Thursday by a northbound vehicle whose driver had lost control and crossed into the southbound lanes, then continued onto the shoulder of the road, coroner's investigators said in a written statement.
Alvarado died in a field about a half-mile east of Santa Ana Canyon Road. He was a member of the Bahati Foundation Pro Cycling Team. The team includes international cycling champion Floyd Landis, according to the foundation's website.
