Woman killed walking bike across street in National City Wednesday; 3rd bike rider killed in San Diego County this week
The bad news just keeps on coming.
Multiple sources are reporting that a woman was killed walking her bike across the street in National City Wednesday morning, the third bike rider killed in San Diego County just this week.
The victim, identified only as a local transient, was apparently crossing Highland Avenue near 18th Street mid-block when she was struck by a 22-year old driver around 6:15 am.
She died at the scene, despite the efforts of paramedics.
The 22-year old driver remained at the scene following the crash, and cooperated with investigators.
This is at least the 57th bicycling fatality in Southern California this year, and the seventh that I’m aware of in San Diego County.
My deepest prayers and sympathy for the victim and all his loved ones.
