    Fontana. Mt. Baldy. Anyone We Know?

    A Fontana bicyclist suffered fatal injuries following a collision with a vehicle near Evey Canyon. The 77-year-old female driver was traveling southbound on Mt. Baldy Road around 7 a.m. when she attempted to pass the 59-year-old male cyclist on the left. The passenger-side mirror of the white Chevy SUV struck the cyclist, propelling the biker to the ground with a tremendous impact. Los Angeles County Fire responded to the scene and the cyclist was airlifted to USC Medical Center with severe head trauma. Although he was wearing a helmet, the cyclist’s injuries were too severe and he died at the hospital. The accident remains under investigation.


    Not much more info. Yes...I'm sad.
    May you live long, live strong, and live happy!

    Terrible. I don't know the rider in question, but my father is 59 and is on baldy road all the time. To think about it is to imagine how senseless, avoidable, and tragic an accident like that truly is.

    77 is not that old in 2014... just saying.
