A motorcyclist in his late 20s was fatally struck by a pickup truck driver Saturday evening at Highway 1 and Mirada Road in Miramar, just north of Half Moon Bay, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call around 5:45 p.m. An area volunteer firefighter attempted to revive the motorcyclist, but he succumbed to his injuries at the scene, said Sgt. Philip Hallworth.

Highway 1 was closed northbound and southbound from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. as officers with the Sheriff’s Office Major Accident Investigation Team responded.

The pickup driver remained at the scene and is cooperating with the investigation, Hallworth said.

The identity of the motorcyclist has not yet been released.
