More bad news this weekend, as KCBS-2 reports someone riding a bicycle was killed in Hawthorne yesterday.
Unfortunately, no details are available at this time.
According to the station, the crash occurred at Ocean Gate Ave and Rosecrans Ave.
Video from the scene shows what appears to be a fat tire bike in the left lane on Rosecrans less than 100 feet from the intersection, not far from a tent covering the victim.
The station reports it’s not clear whether the driver stayed at the scene.
Hopefully, we’ll learn more soon.
This is at least the 29th bicycling fatality in Southern California this year, and the sixth that I’m aware of in Los Angeles County.
If the driver did flee after the crash, it would be least the 11th fatal hit-and-run involving a SoCal bike rider this year.
My deepest sympathy and prayers for the victim and her loved ones.
