Anyone who's read any blog or newspaper article on cycling in Southern California knows that Los Angeles is in the midst of an epidemic of hit-and-run collisions, some of which have been fatal. Well, the IE has joined LA- a cyclist and his brother were injured, the former fatally, in a hit-and-run crash in northern San Bernardino. Thomas Joseph Meeks and his brother were struck by a 2000 or earlier white Chrysler or Pontiac, with the surviving victim adamant that it was a Chrysler. The vehicle would have damage to its front end and license plate. If you have any information about the incident, please contact SBPD Sgt. Rich Lawhead at 909-384-5738.
Motorists- learn to share the road. If I hit you, I put a scratch or a dent into your 2-ton steel monstrosity. If you hit me, I go to the ER at best, and possibly the morgue. Remember that you are in control of a deadly weapon whenever you are in the driver's seat, and act accordingly. And, if you are in an accident, PULL THE FSCK OVER.
I hope the driver gets a very long stay in prison for this one.
