A Ford Explorer struck a man and woman on a tandem bicycle in Huntington Beach Sunday, killing him and seriously injuring her.

It happened about 8:50 a.m. near Magnolia Street and Hamilton Avenue, according to Huntington Beach police spokeswoman Jennifer Carey.

The 74-year-old man and his 82-year-old wife were transported to a hospital, where he died, Carey said. His name was withheld.

The driver of the 2005 Explorer stayed at the scene and cooperated with police, Carey said. Intoxication did not appear to factor in the crash, she said.

Anyone with information on the crash was asked to call Huntington Beach police traffic investigators D. Demetre at 714-536-5670 or V. Rattanchandani at 714-536-5231.
