Woman riding bicycle killed in Colton collision; at least the 70th SoCal bike rider killed this year

This year just keeps getting worse.

The latest bad news comes from Colton, where a woman was killed riding her bike Sunday evening.

According to a minimalist report from the Fontana Herald, the victim was struck by a driver near Santo Antonio Drive and Washington Street at 7:10 pm Sunday.

She died at the scene. No identification has been released at this time.

The driver remained at the scene following the crash, and reportedly cooperated with investigators. However, no information was given about the driver, and there’s no word on how the crash occurred at this time.

Unfortunately, that’s all we know right now.

Anyone with any information is urged to call Officer Villalobos of the Colton Police Department at 909/370-5000.

This is at least the 70th bicycling fatality in Southern California this year, and the tenth that I’m aware of in San Bernardino County.

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