The California Highway Patrol has revealed that the same driver who struck and killed a bicyclist earlier this month was involved in a similar crash three years ago.

A 47-year-old woman from Los Altos died after a big-rig struck her along Alpine Road near I-280 on Nov. 4.

The CHP hasn't determined if the truck's driver, Gabriel Vera, or bicyclist was at fault. Vera drove the same truck when it hit and killed a man on a bicycle in Santa Cruz in 2007.

Police determined the cyclist was at fault in that tragedy.
