 1 bicyclist killed, 1 badly injured in California bike accident

Distractions while driving were not uncommon before California drivers had phones in their cars. Drivers took their eyes off the road to retrieve dropped items, change radio stations or daydream. Those momentary diversions still happen, but today, drivers are also tempted by electronic devices.

The Tribune reported a 62-year-old Los Angeles bicyclist was killed and a second bike rider was severely injured, in a recent collision with a sport utility vehicle. The pair was riding on the shoulder of a road near Paso Robles, when the fatal bike accident occurred. Authorities claim the teen driver responsible for the crash was distracted.
