Danny Martin, “Tricycle Man”, Dies in Whittier Boulevard Tricycle Crash Near Jordan Road

 
WHITTER, CA (December 19, 2019)—A beloved tricyclist in the Whittier community died Monday after being struck by a vehicle on Whittier Boulevard near Jordan Road.
 
The 61-year-old man, best known as “Tricycle Man” Danny Martin, died just after 6:00 a.m. Monday.
 
Paramedics responded to Whittier Boulevard near Jordan Road to find Martin seriously injured. Despite aggressive life-saving efforts, Martin—a venerated community figure known for riding a tricycle decked with an American flag and a sign praising Jesus—died shortly after.
 
The 2004 BMW driver stopped and stayed at the scene. As of now, police did not file charges.
 
Investigators learned that Martin did not cross in a marked crosswalk when the incident occurred. However, it is unclear how the accident unfolded.
 
According to KCBS, Martin became paralyzed in a motocross crash decades ago that left him in a coma. Since then, he spent most of his days riding his tricycle, smiling and waving at passers-by.
 
A GoFundMe page is in place for Martin’s family as they raise funds for his memorial service,


This tremendous loss has left a community heartbroken. With sincere sympathies, the Sweet Lawyers would like to express their condolences to the friends and family of Danny Martin.
