News is just coming in that a bike rider was killed in Garden Grove this morning.
The Orange County Register reports the 58-year old Victorville resident was riding west on Century Blvd at Euclid Street when he reportedly went through a red light and was struck by a 22-year old woman driving south on Century.
He died after being transported to UCI Medical Center.
The driver remained at the scene; police appear to hold her blameless in the collision.
As always, who was really at fault depends on whether there were any independent witnesses, which the story does not mention.
This is the 38th bicycling fatality in Southern California this year, and the eighth in Orange County. It’s also the second in OC in just the last two days.
My deepest sympathy and prayers for the victim and his family.
