Cyclist hit twice, killed on Highway 29 identified as Lake County man

Lake County authorities have identified a man who was struck on his bike and then run over by a second car Tuesday morning as Lloyd Lee Knight, 59, a Lower Lake resident.

Knight was cycling south of Lower Lake on Highway 29 in foggy conditions when he was struck by a passing motorist, then run over by a second car and killed around 7:45 a.m., the CHP said.

The first driver, identified as Aimee C. Hubbard, 25, a Clearlake resident, later was arrested on suspicion of felony hit-and-run.

Authorities said Hubbard was northbound on Highway 29 and struck Knight, also northbound, and then continued driving into Clearlake.

Later that morning, Hubbard went to the Clearlake police station after hearing that someone had been hit and killed in the area, the CHP said. She told authorities she thought she'd hit a deer.

A second driver who hit Knight in the road, John Weeks, 62, of Hidden Valley Lake, remained with Knight while awaiting emergency help, the CHP said.
