A Menifee man died Friday from injuries suffered when he was struck by a car while riding a bicycle on Railroad Canyon Road in Canyon Lake, police said.

Conrad Pasco, 61, was identified by the Coroner's Office Saturday as the accident victim. According to a Sheriff's Department news release, the victim attempted to cross the eastbound lanes in the 31000 block of Railroad Canyon Road from the raised concrete median. He was struck by a gray Honda Civic in the number one lane.

Although Pasco was wearing a helmet, he sustained major head trauma and internal injuries. He was transported to a local hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries.

The Canyon Lake Traffic Reconstruction Unit responded to the scene. The driver of the Honda, 21-year-old Dylan Fisher of Yucaipa, was interviewed and released. Railroad Canyon Road eastbound was closed from Town Center East Drive to Goetz Road while an investigation was conducted. It was re-opened at 2:40 p.m.

No other details are available at this time. Anyone with information on this investigation is encouraged to call Deputy Osterloh at the Perris Sheriff’s Station, 951-210-1000.
