4/20/2012At about 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 18th, an SUV struck and killed 63-year-old cyclist Charles Raymond Gilbreth in the College Area of San Diego. While riding in the bicycle lane on Montezuma Avenue, Gilbreth was struck from behind near Collwood Boulevard. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities do not believe speed or alcohol contributed to the collision and are investigating.
“A police investigation into a fatal accident can take several weeks, which can be frustrating for family members seeking information about what happened to their loved one,” explained California personal injury lawyer James Ballidis.
Traffic accidents claimed the lives of 9 bicyclists and injured another 991 in San Diego County in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. Statewide, bicyclist fatalities decreased by 9.2 percent from 109 in 2008 to 99 in 2009 and 2010.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of Charles Raymond Gilbreth, the cyclist who was struck and killed by the SUV last Wednesday.
