David Sheridan Killed in Cycling Accident After Being Hit by Driver
SAN DIEGO, Calif. (July 24, 2018) – David Sheridan, 53, of San Diego, was critically injured early Tuesday morning when he was struck by a car while bike riding on state Route 163 in the Kearny Mesa area, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The CHP dispatch reported the crash about 5:14 a.m. Police say the rider was down in slow lanes on southbound state Route 163 near state Route 52.
The 53-year-old man was struck by a 63-year-old woman driving a Toyota Camry after the vehicle in front of suddenly swerved causing her to jerk to the right before hitting the victim.
Paramedics responded and rushed the injured man by ambulance to Sharp Memorial Hospital, police said. The man later died at the hospital.
A SigAlert was issued due to the Nos. 4 and 5 lanes being blocked.
At this time, it’s unknown who is going to be held responsible for this collision. There are certainly many unanswered questions such as who had the right-of-way and if speed or distractions played a role.
We offer our heartfelt condolences to the family of Mr. Sheridan at this difficult time.
