    The use of tasers has proven controversial for the SJPD, but the coroner has let them off the hook in this case.

    A 25-year-old man on a bicycle was struck and killed in an  apparent hit-and-run Monday morning in San Jose, a police spokesman said.

    Someone called police at about 6:50 a.m. to report finding a man  on the side of the road at Zanker and Los Esteros roads in the city's Alviso  community, Officer Jose Garcia said.

    He said it appears the cyclist was hit by a car on his way to  work. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Garcia said officers were not able to locate any witnesses at the  scene.

    Anyone who may have seen the hit-and-run is asked to call the  Police Department's traffic investigations unit at (408) 277-4654. Those  wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at (408) 947-STOP (7867).
