Bicyclist Stuck and Killed by Motorist in Rancho Cordova

On July 19, 2010, at 8:03 a.m., Rancho Cordova Police Department officers responded to the report that a bicyclist had been struck by a car in the area of Whiterock Road and Quality Drive. Officers arrived and found a 61-year-old male lying in the street and suffering from severe injuries. Paramedics transported the victim to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

The driver of the white Saturn, that struck the victim, remained at the scene and was detained by the officers. The officers quickly determined the 23-year-old male resident of Rancho Cordova did not possess a valid driver’s license and he was taken into custody. The motorist will be booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail on the misdemeanor charge of driving without a license when the detectives have completed their interview process.

Witnesses have told investigators both the car and bicyclist were traveling eastbound on Whiterock Road when the bicyclist turned into the car’s path and was struck. The RCPD Major Accident Investigation Team will investigate this fatal collision and attempt to determine what caused the bicyclist and motorist to collide. The team will forward their report to the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office who will determine what additional charges, if any, will be filed in this case. Anyone who may have witnessed the collision, and who did not talk to officers at the scene, is urged to call RCPD Traffic Unit detective Ron Brazell at (916) 875-9623.
