Bike rider killed in crash near Redlands; no details available

Another person has been killed riding a bicycle in Southern California.

And once again, almost no details are available.

According to My News LA, a bike rider was killed in a collision at 5:32 Thursday morning on San Timoteo Canyon Road at Redlands Boulevard in Redlands.

However, the location appears to put it in Riverside County, near the border with San Bernardino County south of Redlands.

A street view shows a heavily trafficked T-intersection, with two-lane roadways in each direction.

Unfortunately, that’s all we know at this time; there’s no word on the identity of the victim or how the crash happened.

Let alone why.

This is at least the 53rd bicycling fatality in Southern California this year, and the tenth that I’m aware of in Riverside County.

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

    My father has lived in the Canyon off of San Timoteo for over 50 years. At 87 he is still petitioning the county to put up signs and add patrol to this roadway.
    Cyclist have enjoyed this beautiful canyon for years but in recent years with mass growth and crowded freeways, San Timoteo Canyon Roadway has become a raceway with no consideration for cyclist and pedestrians.
    I’ve actually had people say, “why would cyclist ride in the Canyon”. Seriously people, slow down!!!!
