HESPERIA, California – Harold Blahut, 62, of Hesperia was struck by a car while riding his bicycle Sunday night on the southbound lanes of Hickory Avenue, according to a press release issued by the San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner’s Department.
The driver of a Volkswagen Passat was driving in the same direction at about 30 to 40 mph when for unknown reasons he hit Blahut at 8:30 p.m., the report said. Paramedics responding to the scene of the bicycle accident transported Blahut to Desert Valley Hospital where he was pronounced dead in the emergency room.
The bicycle accident is being investigated by the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Traffic Division.
“Police will investigate this crash to determine if there was negligence on the part of the driver who struck this man,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, founder of the Seegmiller Law Firm. “Drivers who are reckless, drinking or distracted can be cited and charged with criminal acts if they injure or kill someone on the roadway.”
