Local News

FRESNO, California (KSEE/KGPE) — A man who suffered severe head injuries after the bicycle he was riding collided with a vehicle in central Fresno Monday afternoon died in the hospital shortly afterward, California Highway Patrol officers say.

Just before 2:30 p.m., investigators say a person riding a bike eastbound on Cedar near Brentwood veered into the path of a Toyota Camry headed southbound.

The bicycle hit the front of the car, ejecting the rider onto the front of the vehicle, investigators say. The bicyclist suffered “extremely severe head injuries” CHP officials said. He has been taken to an area hospital and passed away

None of the five people in the vehicle were hurt and investigators say they are being “very cooperative.” Neither speed nor alcohol is considered to be a factor in the crash, and officers say the bicyclist was not wearing a helmet at the time of the collision.
