CALEXICO — On Dec. 10 at approximately 5:30 a.m. Calexico public-safety personnel responded to State Route 111, south of Jasper road, regarding a traffic collision with possible injuries.
When the Calexico police officers arrived they noticed an
adult male, approximately 35 years of age, and a bicycle laying on the
southbound lane’s west edge. Due to the
bicyclist’s appearance, he was apparently deceased.
The adult male driver of a vehicle, about 40 years of age, reported
he was traveling southbound at approximately 60-65 miles per hour on 111
passing Jasper Road. The driver then suddenly
saw a bicyclist traveling southbound in front of him in the middle of the
lane. The driver attempted to swerve out
of the way, with no avail, colliding into the bicyclist.
There was no detection of an alcoholic beverage
emitting from the driver or the bicyclist.
The driver volunteered to get his blood drawn to rule out any
possibility of him being under the influence of an alcoholic beverage. The traffic collision is under investigation.
No names were immediately released.
