    A bicyclist became San Jose's first traffic fatality when he died Saturday evening in a collision with two vehicles, police said.

    Officers responded at about 7:08 p.m. to the intersection of South Seventh and East Reed streets on a report of the collision.

    A preliminary investigation shows the bicyclist was riding west on East Reed Street when he rode into South Seventh Street, according to police.

    A silver 2016 Audi struck the victim first and pushed the bicyclist into a black 2002 General Motors SUV.

    The vehicles were traveling in opposites directions on a green light, police said.

    The bicyclist died at the collision site even though a nurse performed CPR.

    Both drivers stopped and cooperated with officers and alcohol and drugs do not appear to have played a part in the collision, police said.

    Anyone with information about the collision is being asked to call San Jose police Detective Kelvin Pham of the Traffic Investigation Unit at (408) 277-4654.
