More bad news, as a Compton bike rider was killed in a collision Monday morning.
According to the Press-Telegram, the victim, identified only as a man in his 30s, was riding north on Compton Ave around 6:30 am when he was struck by a vehicle driving east on El Segundo Blvd.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver remained at the site following the collision.
A satellite view shows a signalized intersection with four lanes in each direction, with a center left turn lane; Compton narrows to two lanes south of El Segundo.
No other information is available at this time.
This is the 62nd bicycling fatality in Southern California, and the 24th in Los Angeles County.
My deepest sympathy and prayers for the victim and his loved ones.
Our prayers go up for the family and friends of the victim.
The person was identified by City News Service, although the original PT story was not modified.
“David Hernandez-Cruz, 31, of Compton died at the scene, said coroner’s Assistant Chief Ed Winter.”
