1 Dead in Fremont Bicycle Accident on Hansen Avenue and Dutra Way
FREMONT, CA (July 15, 2021) – Wednesday, a teenager died in a bicycle crash on Hansen Avenue and Dutra Way which happened last July 4.
At about 9:30 p.m., the officers came to a report of a crash involving a bicycle and a vehicle. Moreover, it happened on Hansen Avenue and Dutra Way.
Upon their arrival, they located a 15-year-old Fremont resident with a life-threatening injury. Thus, they provided treatment before transporting him to a trauma center. However, the teen succumbed to his injuries last Wednesday.
“I have two teenagers myself, and I cannot imagine the grief and sorrow this young man’s family is experiencing,” police Chief Kimberly Petersen said. “On behalf of the Fremont Police Department, I offer our deepest condolences to the young man’s family and friends.”
At this time, the authorities haven’t disclosed the identity of the deceased.
Meanwhile, the 23-year-old Fremont driver remained at the scene and has been cooperative with the investigation. Also, the authorities do not believe that alcohol or drugs played a role in the crash. Moreover, the officers do not believe that the driver is responsible. Thus, they “do not anticipate making any arrests.”
The authorities urged anyone with information about the incident to contact Officer Jacob Stannon at 510-790-6765 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Anonymous tipsters may send TIP FREMONTPD with a message to 888777.
