A cyclist died Sunday morning after running a red light at the corner of Glendale and California avenues and being hit by a car, police said.

Sgt. Tom Lorenz said the crash occurred at about 7 a.m. The cyclist, a man in his mid-twenties who was not immediately identified, died at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center.

Lorenz said a witness at the nearby Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf saw the cyclist, headed south on Glendale Avenue, run a red light before being struck by a car headed east.

"He didn't even slow down," he said, adding the driver of the car, a woman in her 40s, has been cleared of any fault.
