LA Times: Woman killed when struck by cyclist

A reader (thanks Andrea) brought a sad story from Los Angeles to my attention.

Here’s the snip from a report in the LA Times:

“A woman in her 60s died this morning after being hit by a teenage bicyclist in Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles police said.

The woman was crossing the street in the 600 block of Palisades Drive just north of Sunset Boulevard shortly before 7 a.m. when she was hit by the 16-year-old boy riding his bicycle…

“He’s just devastated,” Thomas said of the boy, who sustained cuts and bruises.

It was not immediately known how fast the boy was traveling, but it was still dark outside when the accident occurred. Authorities also did not know if the woman suffered fatal injuries when she was struck or when she fell to the ground.”

It doesn’t happen very often, but it does happen.
