41-year old man riding bike killed by Colton hit-and-run driver; 13th SoCal bike rider killed by hit-and-run drivers this year

Once again, someone on a bicycle has been murdered by a hit-and-run driver.

This time in Colton early Monday.

But unfortunately, that’s almost all we know.

According to the Daily Bulletin, the victim, identified only as a 41-year old man, was struck by a driver around 12:54 am near North Rancho Avenue and West Johnson Street.

He died at the scene.

There’s no word on how the crash occurred, or any information about the suspect or their vehicle at this time.

The driver should face a murder charge once they’re caught for making a conscious decision to leave another human being to die in the street.

But they won’t.

This is at least the 39th bicycling fatality in Southern California this year, and the fourth that I’m aware of in San Bernardino County.

A full third of those deaths have been hit-and-runs.

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