Once again, a bike rider has been killed in San Bernardino County.
And once again, there’s almost no information available.
According to the Fontana Herald News, Eric John Konz was struck by a driver while riding near the intersection of Etiwanda Ave and Whittram Ave at 2:25 Monday morning.
A 61-year old Rancho Cucamonga resident, Konz was pronounced dead at the scene just over 20 minutes later.
Unfortunately, that’s all we know right now.
No word on how the crash occurred, or whether the driver stuck around after the crash.
Or even if Konz had lights on his bike at that early morning hour.
This is at least the 24th bicycling fatality in Southern California this year, and the fourth that I’m aware of in San Bernardino County.
My deepest sympathy and prayers for Eric John Konz and all his loved ones.
We offer up our prayers for the family and friends of Mr. Eric John Konz.
