Police released more details on the hit and run collision that killed 55 year old cyclist Glen Arnold Earnest on Monday afternoon. They’re asking the public to be on the lookout for a “dirty white,” light gray or silver 90s or early 2000s Dodge truck — either a Durango (a small-ish SUV) or the Dakota (a mid size pickup truck) — with significant front end damage from the hit-from-behind collision. Some witnesses report the front bumper might be missing.
A personal plea from friends and family of Mr Earnest was left at the ghost bike left in memory of the cyclist. “Whoever did this to my best friend & family please turn yourself in please. We know in our heart it was an accident.”
Of 19 traffic fatalities in the city of San Jose, California this year, 13 have been pedestrians or cyclists.
