    A bicyclist was struck and killed by a vehicle in Oceanside late Thursday.

    The collision happened on State Route 76 at Frazee Road near Towne Center just before 9 p.m.

    Oceanside Police closed down eastbound lanes of SR-76 while they conducted an investigation.

    The cyclist was traveling the wrong way before the collision, police said. Witnesses said the cyclist veered into oncoming traffic.

    One driver was able to avoid striking the cyclist but a second, a 2005 Acura MDX, could not avoid the collision. 

    The cyclist was pinned beneath the vehicle, officials said.

    The driver of the vehicle stopped and was not cited.

    The victim was described by officials as a 54-year-old man. He was not identified.

    Oceanside Police say the incident is under investigation but it appears alcohol may have been a factor.
