It’s been a bad 24 hours in San Bernardino County.
In addition to Friday’s fatality, in which a Loma Linda bike rider was killed by a suspect fleeing police, another bicyclist was killed in Newberry Springs Thursday night.
He was pronounced dead after being taken to Barstow Community Hospital.
No other information is available at this time; the Sun reports it’s not even known if the driver remained at the scene.
A street view shows a two lane country road with gravel shoulders.
This is the 53rd bicycling fatality in Southern California this year, and the seventh in San Bernardino County.
Correction: While the headline was correct, the story above initially gave the location as Newberry Park, rather than Newberry Springs. Thanks to Bryan J Blumberg for the correction.
My deepest sympathy and prayers for the victim and his loved ones.
