Man, 59, Dies After River Road Hit-and-Run Crash

GUERNEVILLE, Sonoma County (August 27, 2017) – A bicyclist was killed in an alleged hit-and-run crash on River Road Sunday morning, according to The Press Democrat.

The accident took place at about 8:45 a.m.

As per the article, a statement released by California Highway Patrol said a 59-year-old Berkeley man was stopped on the right shoulder looking at his phone when he was struck by a BMW. The car was initially going west and then spun out of control, hitting the cyclist.

Guerneville Fatal Hit-and-Run Accident

The rider suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene. His name has not been yet released pending notification of next of kin.

Meanwhile, CHP affirmed that the driver involved did not stop to render aid and fled west. The motorist allegedly went around and headed back toward Guerneville.

The suspect vehicle, described as being all black with blacked out windows and taillights, was found abandoned in Rio Nido. Anyone with information is asked to call the CHP at 707-588-1400.


We offer our prayers and most heartfelt condolences to the friends and family members of the victim during such a difficult time.


Motorists are obliged to remain at the scene after being involved in a traffic accident. In this case, it is evident that the driver involved will be held fully responsible for causing the incident that led to the death of the innocent man. Regardless of their reasons, leaving the area following a crash is a serious crime and punishable by law, especially if the collision tragically killed another individual. We are hopeful that the authorities will soon be able to track down the suspect and justice will then be served.

In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, families of deceased victims can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault parties seeking compensation for damages including medical expenses, funeral costs, lost future income and loss of love and companionship.

We at Johnson Attorneys Group will fight aggressively to get you the justice you deserve. Call us at 800-235-6801 free case consultation. Let us help you.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
