74-Year-Old Bicyclist Killed in Bicycle-Truck Collision at North Victory Lane

 
RANCHO MIRAGE, CA (April 2, 2018) – On Monday morning, a collision between a bicycle and a utility truck at Bob Hope Drive, took the life of an elderly cyclist.
 
According to the Riverside County Sheriff’s deputies, the accident happened around 10:13 AM in the northbound lanes at Victory Lane. For unknown reasons, a Chevrolet utility truck used the bicycle lanes where 74-year-old Peter Harvey, a resident of British Columbia, was riding his bicycle. The impact of the collision left a visible damage to the front of the truck.
 
The truck driver stayed at the scene of the accident and cooperated with investigators. It was determined that drugs nor alcohol were involved when the collision happened. Police officers shut down Bob Hope Drive between Dinah Shore Drive and Gerald Ford Drive to conduct an in-depth investigation and later reopened around 3 PM.
 
About four more motorists parked along the road for nearly two hours while the investigation was being continued. The sheriff’s deputies interviewed them for additional information.
 
This incident became relevant in the constant discussion about bicycle safety in the area. The implementation of the CV Link is now back on the table as a result of continuous threats for bicyclists.
