According to KCBS radio, a bicyclist has been killed in a hit-and-run crash involving a dump truck this morning in Redwood City:

Authorities are looking for the driver of a dump truck who hit and killed a bicyclist in Redwood City this morning and then drove off. Redwood City police tell KCBS that the incident took place shortly before 8 o'clock on Shoreway Road at Redwood Shores Parkway. The truck turned right from Shoreway onto Redwood Shores, running over a female bicyclist. The bicyclist was dead by the time paramedics arrived on scene. It's unclear if the driver of the dump truck was aware that his vehicle had run over the woman. Police are interviewing a witness who believes he or she could identify both the truck and its driver.

Thanks to bicyclist Ted Goldberg at KCBS for the tip.
