Then there were three.
A bad weekend for Southern California bike riders got worse, when an unidentified man was killed riding a bike in Indio Sunday morning.
He apparently died at the scene.
The driver, identified only as man, remained after the crash and cooperated with investigators.
Unfortunately, no other information is available at this time; even the police spokesman had to speculate that the crash occurred in the middle of the road, because police shut down in both directions.
And yes, this serves as yet another reminder to always carry ID with you when you ride.
This is at least the 16th bicycling fatality in Southern California this year, and the fifth that I’m aware of in Riverside County; he’s also the second person killed riding a bike in Indio in just the last two months.
Update: The victim has been identified as 73-year old Indio resident William Mohan.
My deepest sympathy and prayers for William Mohan and all his loved ones.
