Is their an update on the appearance (in the downtown Los Angeles County Municipal Court on Jan. 16, 2014) of Mohammed Kadri who killed James Rapley on Temescal Canyon Rd last month? Is he in jail? When is the trial?
I don’t have any details on the hearing that took place on the 16th. However, initial court dates seldom result in any action, and any trial date is still a long way off.
FYI…in San Antonio a dad was shot by a passing motorist while teaching his kid to ride a bike. This happened sat maybe.
I am one of the sons of Irineo Martinez that was struck by a truck on Friday January 15 and your website recently posted a story on him that we found to be very nice. This is the link to that story http://bikinginla.com/tag/bicycling-fatality/
However there is currently a comment posted to that story from a user named condolences that obviously does not no my father as well as he thinks he may know him. Our Father had the biggest heart and anyone that knows him can vouch for that, he was not only a loving father but an awesome grandpa to 14 grand kids. And I was hoping that there could be some way possible of removing the comment, only because it was one of my nieces who is only 11 years old that actually came across your website and read that and brought it to my sisters attention and told my sister which is her mo “how could somebody say that about my grandpa” So I would really appreciate it if someone can find it in their heart to remove that comment. Thank you in advance and I’m hoping I am contacting the correct dept,
Thank you for bringing this to my attention. It is the policy of this site to allow comments as long as they don’t contain personal attacks or unfairly criticize the dead, who are unable to defend themselves.
The comment you’re referring to clearly crossed that line, and I should have removed it as soon as I saw it. I apologize for that, and for any pain it may have caused.
I am very sorry for your loss, and hope your father will be at peace. I also hope that you all may find comfort and peace, and treasure your memories of him.
Fantastic site. Informative, up to date and constantly active. Great info! Keep up the good work!!
A man was killed last night, 9/25/17 at about 530pm just as the sun was doing it’s usual blinding thing setting in the west on the east/west lincoln ave in orange, calif. Alex was I think headed south on Palm in the neighborhood just north of lincoln when he lost his brakes and went down the hill into the oncoming traffic on lincoln where a prius hit him I think as i saw the windshield smashed in. As i drove by the paramedics where already doing chest compressions on Alex so i knew it was bad. Lincoln ave was closed until 9pm so the investigators could do their work. There is a small shrine to Alex’s memory at the corner of palm and lincoln.

Do you need e-bike (non working) donations for ghost bikes? I have two that could be used (let’s hope they are not needed for a while).
Please let me know.
Hi Femi, I reached out to the group that places ghost bikes, and they may be able to use them. Email me any information you have, including where they could pick up the bikes, and I’ll pass it along. You can find my email on the “About” page.
