News broke Monday night that a bike rider had suffered life threatening injuries in a Highland crash on Saturday.
Sadly, he didn’t make it.
The San Bernardino Sun reports the victim was struck by a pickup on Palm Avenue south of Third Street around 7:30 pm Saturday; he passed away from his injuries Monday afternoon.
The San Bernardino County coroner identified him as 34-year old Redlands resident Brandon Mayberry.
According to the coroner, the crash occurred as Mayberry was riding north on Palm, and was rear-ended by the driver of the truck.
The driver reportedly stayed at the scene and cooperated with investigators.
A street view shows two lanes in each direction on Palm with a center turn lane, and what appears to be bike lanes on either side.
Anyone with information about the crash is urged to contact Highland Police Department Deputy Kyle Glozer at 909/425-9793.
This is the 4th bicycling fatality in Southern California this year, and the second in San Bernardino County.
My deepest sympathy for Brandon Mayberry and all his loved ones.
