R.I.P. George Kaufer, Jr.

55 year old George Kaufer of Danville, CA was cycling to his dentist appointment when he was struck and fatally injured by a 1997 Toyota Avalon. According to the Contra Costa Times, the unnamed driver of the Toyota was traveling northound on Crow Canyon Road when she hit Kaufer at Crow Canyon and Tassajara Ranch Drive.

My heart-felt condolences to his family, who are understandably heartbroken over this loss. Kaufer, who leaves a wife and two daughters behind, was facilities manager for the San Mateo County school district and was known for using his bike to get around.

    It is possible that the cyclist hit the car, and not the car hitting the cyclist as this paragraph suggests.

    Not likely. I knew George for several years. An excellent cyclist and person with good traffic awareness. He will be sorely missed for his good humor and common sense.
