Bike rider killed in Carson hit-and-run Saturday morning; third SoCal bike death in two days

A bad weekend for SoCal bike riders continued to get worse Saturday morning.

Just one day after people were killed riding their bikes in Lancaster and San Diego, a woman apparently lost her life while riding in Carson, thanks to a heartless hit-and-run driver.

According to My News LA, the victim was run down around 6:17 am somewhere in the vicinity of Chico and Dominguez streets, and was pronounced dead at the scene.

She was not publicly identified; the only description was an initial call of a female down.

There’s no word on how the crash happened, and no description of the suspect or the vehicle used to commit the crime.

As we’ve noted far too many times before, there is simply no excuse, ever, to flee the scene following a crash. The driver should face a murder charge for making a conscious decision to leave the victim bleeding in the street if an autopsy shows she might have survived if she’d gotten help sooner.

But probably won’t.

This is at least the 43rd bicycling fatality in Southern California this year, and the eleventh that I’m aware of in Los Angeles County.

My deepest sympathy and prayers for the victim and her loved ones.

    The victim of this senseless crime was not female but a male age 27. Please update this story.
