Update: 32-year old Jaime Gutierrez killed in collision while riding a bicycle in Good Hope collision

Good Hope wasn’t good or hopeful for someone riding a bicycle Saturday evening.

According to My News LA, the victim was struck by a driver around 5:14 pm on state Highway 74 at Taylor Road, in the unincorporated section of Riverside County.

Actually, the story said the victim was struck by Tacoma Pickup, as if the driver had nothing to do with it.

A witness reported the victim, who has not been publicly identified, was lying on the dirt along the right-hand shoulder of the highway. They died at the scene.

The driver stopped and remained following the crash.

There’s no word on the victim’s age or sex at this time. There’s also no information on how the crash happened, or who may have been at fault. Or even which direction they were traveling.

This is at least the 12th bicycling fatality in Southern California this year, and the fourth that I’m aware of already this year in Riverside County.

Update: This victim has been identified as 32-year old Perris resident Jaime Gutierrez. No details available.

Update 2: A crowdfunding campaign to help pay for his funeral has raised a little over $3,700 of the $30,000 goal. 

My deepest sympathy and prayers for Jaime Gutierrez and all his loved ones.
