The collision took place at the intersection of Magic Mountain Parkway and Railroad Avenue.

“The bicyclist was heading northbound on Railroad and went against a red light,” Cohen said, adding that this was based on initial witness reports, and that Sheriff’s Station officials were waiting for the Coroner’s Office to arrive on scene.

The truck was making a left-hand turn from Magic Mountain Parkway on to Bouquet Canyon Road.

The bicyclist, who was described by Coroner’s officials as a 47-year-old man from Newhall, was declared dead at the scene.

The driver was taken to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital to have his blood alcohol level tested, as a precaution, but it’s not suspected to be a factor in the crash, Cohen said.

“It’s not suspected but we have to rule that out,” he said.

Based on the preliminary investigation, it does not appear as though the driver, who was operating a Los Angeles County vehicle, will face charges in the crash.

Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station officials said the victim’s identity was not known at this time because he had a wallet but no identification.

The identity of the driver also was not released by Sheriff’s Station officials.

Alex Salazar, 25, who said his Valencia home is right next to the intersection, said he just finished taking his niece to school when he returned and saw the traffic stopped.

“It was weird, you never see this type of thing here,” he said, who described the scene as tragic.
