Media Advisory

The San Jose Police Department is currently investigating a fatal traffic collision. On Saturday, 1-2-16, at about 7:08 p.m., officers responded to the area of S. 7th St. and Reed St. on a report of a vehicle that collided with a bicyclist.

A preliminary investigation revealed the victim was riding his bicycle westbound on Reed St. when he crossed into S. 7th St. A silver 2016 Audi driven by 20 year old male and a black 2002 GMC SUV driven by a 66 year old male, were traveling in opposite directions (north and south) on a green light. The silver Audi struck the victim first and was thrown into the GMC. A nurse witness attempted CPR, however, the victim (unknown ID, appears to be adult male) was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Both drivers stopped and are cooperating with the investigation. Alcohol or drugs do not appear to be factors in this collision.  

The identity of the victim will not be released until the Santa Clara County Coroner's Office has confirmed the identity and next of kin has been notified.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Kelvin Pham of the San Jose Police Department's Traffic Investigation Unit at 408-277-4654.

This is the City's 1st fatal collision and 1st victim of 2016.

No other information is available at this time.
