Oceanside man dies in hospital, nearly a month after he was struck by a driver while riding ebike

Too often, we never hear what happens after a victim is hospitalized following a crash.

The rare times we do, the news usually isn’t good.

That’s was the case today, when we learned an Oceanside man died nearly a month after he was hit by a driver in a pre-dawn crash.

According to a report from City News Service, 56-year old Oceanside resident Kevin Cerv died on Friday, 24 days after he hospitalized with severe head and neck trauma.

Cerv was riding his ebike at Corporate Centre Drive and Ocean Ranch Blvd in Oceanside when the driver struck him shortly before 4 am on Tuesday, April 9th.

There’s no description of how the crash occurred, or which way Cerv was riding. There’s also no word on whether the driver, who has not been identified, was ticketed or charged, or if the crash is still being investigated.

Nor is there any reason at this time to believe that the type of bike he was riding contributed to the crash.

This is at least the 18th bicycling fatality in Southern California this year, and the fourth that I’m aware of in San Diego County. It’s also the second bicycling death in Oceanside in less than two months.

My deepest sympathy and prayers for Kevin Cerv and all his loved ones.
