Cyclist Ethan Boyes dies after being struck by a car in San Francisco

Award-winning cyclist Ethan Boyes has died after being struck by a car in a national park in San Francisco, US Park Police said Saturday.

The athlete was struck while riding a bike Tuesday afternoon around the Presidio, a historic park south of the Golden Gate Bridge, authorities said. Boyes was taken to a hospital for treatment and later pronounced dead. He was 44 years old.

The driver was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, the agency said.

Boyes had a storied career that included setting an age group record in a 1,000 meter time trial in 2015. He was a 10-time national champion.

“Beyond Ethan’s athletic accomplishments, he was a leading member of the American track cycling community,” USA Cycling said in a statement. “Their loss of him will be felt at local, regional, national and world events for years to come, as he brought a mix of competence and friendship to every race.”

US Park Police did not share further details about the fatal collision.

“Accident investigations are complex and require analysis of a large amount of evidence and data,” the agency said in a statement. “USPP detectives are working in partnership with the United States Attorney’s Office as the investigation progresses.”

The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition released a statement Friday remembering Boyes as a "beloved figure in San Francisco cycling".

“One traffic fatality is one too many,” the group said.
