Another bike rider has died on the streets of Orange County. And another driver has fled the scene.
But at least this time, the driver was arrested.
The victim, who hasn’t been publicly identified, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver was later found by police and booked on suspicion of felony hit-and-run. No identification was provided on the suspect, either.
Unfortunately, no other information is available at this time, including how or where the crash occurred.
Anyone with information is asked to contact traffic investigator Doug Demetre at (714) 536-5670.
This is at least the 32nd bicycling fatality in Southern California this year, and the ninth that I’m aware of in Orange County.
Update: Three years later, we’ve finally learned the identity of the victim. His sister has named him as Sandor Czene.
My deepest sympathy and prayer for Sandor Czene and all his loved ones.
