California man on bail hold for Tahoe hit-and-run bike death

California man on bail hold for Tahoe hit-and-run bike death

Bicyclists have every right to share most Los Angeles streets and roads with motor vehicles, but riders assume a risk that motorists don't have. Reflective gear and a helmet may increase visibility and prevent serious injuries in some bicycle accidents, but, in many instances, a collision with a car or truck has severe, if not deadly, consequences.

A Placer County driver was arrested recently for striking and killing a 23-year-old bicyclist along Highway 28 near Lake Tahoe. The victim was thrown from his bike and suffered fatal head injuries; reports didn't say whether the rider was wearing a helmet. The young man died less than a week after the crash.
