> CUPERTINO, Calif. (KCBS) — Two bicyclists were killed, and another
> suffered major injuries after being hit by a Santa Clara Sheriff’s patrol
> car in Cupertino this morning.
> The Sheriff’s Department says the deputy was patrolling on Stevens Creek
> Road near Montobello road around 10:30 this morning, when his car crossed
> over the centerline and hit the cyclists.
> One of the cyclists died at the scene, while a second died at Stanford
> Medical Center. The third is listed in critical condition at Stanford.
> ”We just lost a couple of phenomenal human beings. The fact that they were
> tremendous athletes is really beyond the point as well, although they both
> were. Christy was on her way to the Olympic trials, and Matt was a
> phenomenal rider. It’s very distressing,” said Gebhart Evanhook, who was
> riding just behind the two cyclists who died.
> The deputy has been placed on paid administrative leave while the CHP
> investigates the accident.
> Witnesses say there is speculation that the deputy may have fallen asleep
> at the wheel. He was not responding to a call, or speeding at the time of
> the crash.
