From the L.A. Times:
Irvine police are investigating the death of a 68-year-old Yorba Linda woman who was the victim of a collision with a bicyclist.
Jung Yun Kim was walking on a trail in Irvine along the San Diego Creek near the intersection of Harvard Avenue and University Drive when she crossed the path of oncoming cyclists at about 8:30 a.m. Monday. She was hit by a 46-year-old bicyclist from Huntington Beach, according to Irvine police Lt. Rick Handfield.
The bicyclist, whose name was not released, was riding with another bicyclist who witnessed the accident. To ensure they have an independent account of what happened, police are asking for other witnesses to come forward, Handfield said, but the agency does not suspect any wrongdoing.
"We don't suspect they weren't paying attention or were negligent or anything," Handfield said. "It's just an unfortunate, very freak event that Mrs. Kim didn't see them coming and then stepped out in front of them."
She was treated at the scene for major head trauma and taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead about 5 p.m. Monday.
Anyone with information about the accident is asked to call Det. Jonathan Cherney at (949) 724-7024.
