REDDING, CA (October 18, 2018) – A man was injured Thursday evening following a bicycle crash near Lake Boulevard. The victim was later identified as 49-year-old Curtis Shottenkirk of Redding.
 
According to officials with the Redding Police Department, the incident took place at about 7:30 PM. A Toyota RAV4, driven by 80-year-old Edward Plaza of Redding, turned right onto Hilltop Drive on a green light when a bicycle crossed in front of it.
