News broke late this afternoon that an elderly man was killed riding his bike in Mission Viejo Tuesday morning.
According to Mission Viejo Patch, the victim, identified only as a 78-year old man, was killed in some sort of crash around 8 am Tuesday, near Los Alisos Boulevard and Entidad.
There’s no word on how the crash occurred, or even if there was another vehicle, let alone a driver, involved.
Hopefully, we’ll get more information soon.
This is at least the 51st bicycling fatality in Southern California this year, and the ninth that I’m aware of in Orange County.
My deepest prayers and sympathy for the victim and all his loved ones.
Thanks to Victor Bale for the heads-up.
