Anyone know about an accident along PCH this weekend?

A friend of mine said her daughter called her this weekend ( I can't remember if Saturday or Sunday) and said she and her friends came across a fatality accident along Pacific Coat Highway I think near Newport Beach of Corona Del Mar. The daughter was distraught and thought the bicyclist was dead. She wanted her mother to promise to never ride a bike again.

I checked, can't find anything anywhere about a fatality accident. Very curious.

I don't see anything in the news about an accident (fatal or not). There's a blog https://bikinginla.wordpress.com/ that tries to keep track of cyclist fatalities in SoCal, they haven't heard of it. If I'm not mistaken, all traffic fatalities should show up on Orange County coroner web site. It is showing half a dozen fatalities going back to April 1, but no cyclists and nobody on PCH.

Nothing I've seen either about a bad cycling accident.

However, people are still talking about the 2 accidents in September of 2012: Sarah Leaf and Dr. Kit Campion-Ritz.

There was a huge memorial in late October (28) and the creation of a big fund.

I know about the other accidents as I was involved in fund raising...

I suspect my friends daughter was either pulling a prank, was someplace she should not have been (like up in LA) or... well making something up for whatever reason. Although bike accidents are becoming common place they still generally make the news...

My group rode Sunday on PCH from Newport Beach area down to San Clemente and saw nothing out of the ordinary.
