31-year old Palm Springs woman riding bike killed in Cathedral City hit-and-run; 8th fatal SoCal biking hit-and-run in 2024

Once again, someone riding a bicycle in Southern California has been left to die in the street by a heartless hit-and-run driver.

This time Wednesday night in Cathedral City.

According to multiple sources, the victim, identified only as a 31-year old woman, was struck by a driver at Ramon Road and Landau Blvd around 11:10 pm.

First responders found her lying unresponsive in the street suffering from severe injuries. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver fled before police arrived.

There’s no description of the suspect vehicle or the person driving, and no word on how the crash occurred.

There is a bike lane on Landau, but the southbound side disappears near the intersection with Ramon, where it’s most needed.

Anyone with information is urged to call Cathedral City Police Traffic Investigator A. Felix at 760/770-0343 or the Cathedral City Police Department at 760/770-0300.

This is at least the 18th bicycling fatality in Southern California this year, and already the fifth that I’m aware of in Riverside County.

This was also the eighth SoCal bike rider killed by hit-and-run drivers this year.

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