RIALTO, California (December 30, 2014) – An unidentified Hispanic male juvenile riding a bicycle was killed Monday night in a car accident in front of 335 S. Riverside Avenue, near South Street, according to a report by the Press Enterprise.

According to a report by, the young victim is the fourth bicyclist to be killed in Southern California in the last three days and the 85th fatality here this year.
