CHICO, Calif. - A bicyclist was killed Wednesday morning after being hit by a minivan in Chico.

At around 9:20 a.m., a Dodge Mini Cam driven by Tara Daugelli, 32, of Chico, was traveling eastbound on SR-32 approaching W. East Ave. 

A bicyclist was traveling westbound on SR-32 just west of W. East Ave when they made a left turn and failed to yield the right-of-way to the vehicle approaching from the opposite direction. 

According to the release, Daugelli was traveling at around 40-45 miles per hour down SR-32 when she drove into the eastbound lane of SR-32, directly into the path of the bicyclist. 

The vehicle hit the bicyclist and caused them to be ejected from the bike. The bicyclist, who has not been identified, was pronounced deceased at Enloe Medical Center. 

Distracted driving or driving under the influence was not believed to have been a factor in the collision. 

The release states that the bicyclist was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. 

Daugelli was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash and did not sustain any injuries.
