Yet another bike rider has been killed, this time in Fontana.
And just three miles away and two days after another man was killed in Rancho Cucamonga on Sunday.
But at least this time, there wasn’t a driver involved.
The Fontana Herald News reports a man riding an ebike was killed in a solo crash when he hit a raised curb Sunday evening.
The crash apparently occurred on Foothill Boulevard, near where it passes underneath the Pacific Electric Trail, around 7:52 pm Sunday.
According to the Fontana police, the victim was found lying unconscious in the center lane of eastbound Foothill, with no pulse and suffering from serious head trauma.
He was revived and taken to the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center, where he died several hours later.
He has not been publicly identified yet.
A witness reports he hit the curb, then was thrown into the south wall of the Pacific Electric Trail bridge.
There’s no word on whether he was wearing a helmet, which might have made a difference in this case, depending on the speed of his ebike and the force with which he hit the wall.
This is at least the 61st bicycling fatality in Southern California this year, and the ninth that I’m aware of in San Bernardo County.
He is also the 10th bike rider killed in Southern California just this month.
My deepest sympathy and prayers for the victim and all his family and loved ones.
