That didn’t take long.
The first Southern California bicycling fatality of 2018 came just an hour into the new year.
As did the first fatal hit-and-run.
The victim, who has not been publicly identified, was pronounced dead at the scene less than 20 minutes later.
The driver fled the scene, apparently without stopping. No information is available on the suspect or the suspect vehicle at this time.
There’s also no information on how the collision occurred.
A street view shows a two-lane highway with a center turn lane, and no paved shoulder on either side.
This is the first Southern California bicycling fatality of 2018, and the first in San Bernardino County.
My deepest sympathy and prayers for the victim and his or her loved ones.
