Injury hit & run vs cyclist in Fremont, CA

Attention East Bay and south Bay: be on the lookout for a four-door, dark-colored 1995 Toyota sedan (something like a Corolla or a Camry?) with probable front end damage.

Investigators are looking for a hit-and-run driver who struck and seriously injured a bicyclist in Fremont early Thursday morning, a police spokeswoman said.

The collision occurred near Fremont and Old Warm Springs boulevards around 5:40 a.m.

The bicyclist suffered major injuries and was treated at a hospital in San Jose.

Patricia Dolores reports she and her poppy were just riding along on Skyline Boulevard in San Mateo County yesterday when they were run off of the road by a maniac driving upwards of 70 MPH on this winding, two lane mountain road. Shortly thereafter, they encountered the mangled corpse of the driver, who apparently met a bad end after he lost control. Unfortunately, this driver may have taken out another victim.

News about fatal collision here, which reports “CHP has not yet determined what caused the collision.”

50-year-old cyclist Thomas Battat killed on Silverado Trail south of Calistoga in Napa County “when, for unknown reasons, he drifted into the path of a southbound car.” The suicide swerve, sadly, strikes again. Via.

White Truck vs Bicyclist this morning in Santa Cruz on Soquel Drive next to Dominican Hospital. “Reporting party did not know she hit the bicyclist” according to the CHP dispatch log, and no medical treatment was needed. I don’t have any other details.

Cyclist killed in Fremont

David Martinez “collided with a car” (says the Fremont Patch in a lovely exception to the usual passive voice in crash journalism, along with the usual victim blaming in the reader comments) early Monday morning on Paseo Padre Parkway in Fremont, CA. According to news reports, Martinez was pronounced at the scene after rescuers failed to revive him. My condolences to those close to Martinez.

Apparently nobody besides the driver witnessed this crash since the police are asking for information regarding it. No doubt another SWSS.

I saw mention of this on Twitter shortly after it happened then forgot to post about it later.

H/T to Kristen. I biked up Niles Canyon Road from Fremont this morning. There seem to be many motorists there who equate “share the road” with “buzz by within inches of that cyclist.” I had to be a lot more assertive in my lane positioning than usual.
