LAMORINDA, CA — A bicyclist who was killed Thursday in a collision with a big rig truck in Lamorinda has been identified as 54-year-old Martin Nelis of Pleasant Hill. Nelis died at about 12:30 p.m. in the hit-and-run accident on Reliez Valley Road between Gloria Terrace and Withers Avenue in Lafayette.
Nelis had worked as the public information officer for the city of Pleasant Hill since 2007. He played a leading role in organizing several community events, according to a city statement on his death, including the
summer concert series, Community Service Day, Off the Grid food truck events and programs with the library and local schools.
"Martin was often the first to volunteer for any civic event or meeting, and the last to leave and turn off the lights," the city statement said.
"This is a huge loss for the city," said Mayor Tim Flaherty. "Martin was the quintessential dedicated public servant, and a wonderful member of the community."
Police have interviewed the driver and impounded the truck. They continue to investigate the fatal collision.

"Our thoughts are with Mr. Nelis' family and the staff and citizens of the city of Pleasant Hill," Lafayette Mayor Don Tatzin said in a statement.
Anyone who witnessed the crash or has any information that would help the investigation is asked to call the Lafayette Police Department at 925-283-3680.
