A man was killed in a collision while riding his bike near South El Monte Wednesday.
According to the San Gabriel Tribune, 39-year old South El Monte resident Jose Antonio Resendez was crossing Rosemead Blvd at Rush St at 9:35 pm when he was struck by a car headed north on Rosemead in unincorporated LA County.
No word on which direction Resendez going or who had the right-of-way; he died at the scene around 15 minutes later.
The driver remained at the scene.
The story notes both the bicycle and the car suffered moderate damage; as usual, the victim fared worst in the impact.
This is the 35th bicycling collision in Southern California, and the 11th in Los Angeles County. That compares with 17 in SoCal this time last year, and eight in the county.
My deepest sympathy and prayers for Jose Antonio Resendez and his family.
