Horrible fatality in Irvine this morning
There's no official news anywhere to be seen on local news outlets - but as I was rolling out of my neighborhood at the start of my bikemute, I came across a closed intersection, Yale and University (in Irvine). Looked pretty bad. I asked a couple of schoolkids on bikes who were coming from the area of the accident and asked them about it. They said someone was hit. A bike, I asked? They said yes.
So I turned around and took another route to work.
Come to find out from a friend of a friend (so 2nd hand knowledge), who witnessed the accident - a 12 year old schoolkid on a bike crossing University at the intersection had been struck and dragged along with the bike for 150 feet. Don't know if this is true or not. Anyone here have any 1st hand knowledge?
I'm sad beyond words....
