Person riding bicycle killed Saturday in early morning Santa Ana collision; few details available

Once again, someone has been killed riding a bicycle, this time in Santa Ana.

And once again, that’s all we know about them.

According to the Santa Ana Police Department, the victim, who has not been identified in any way, was riding north on Bristol Street at Alton Ave at 3:55 am Saturday when they were struck by a driver traveling east on Alton.

The victim was declared dead at the scene.

That’s all we know at this time. There’s no word on who may have had the right-of-way at the signalized intersection, which has bike lanes north of Alton, but nothing below.

There’s also no word on whether drugs, alcohol, distraction or speed may have been a factor in the crash.

Hopefully, we’ll learn more soon.

Anyone with information is urged to call Santa Ana Police Sergeant R. Shin at 714/245-8294, or the Traffic Division of the Santa Ana Police Department at 714/245-8200.

This is at least the fifth bicycling fatality in Southern California this year, and the first that I’m aware of in Orange County.

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