Once again, someone has been killed riding a bike in Huntington Beach.
And unfortunately, there’s almost no information available.
Police responding to the call found the victim, identified only as a man, lying unresponsive in the street; he was pronounced dead at the scene.
The 46-year old driver remained at the scene and cooperated with the investigation.
As usual, the driver was uninjured.
Anyone with information is urged to call Huntington Beach Accident Investigators A. Turner, 714/536-5670 or D. Kim, 714/536-5666.
This is at least the 14th bicycling fatality in Southern California this year, and the sixth that I’m aware of in Orange County.
Which means half of those deaths this year have been on the unforgiving streets of just one very deadly town.
And if that doesn’t scream there’s a major problem that needs to be addressed, I don’t know what the hell would.
My deepest sympathy and prayers for the victim and his loved ones.
