A man was struck and killed in Cupertino on Tuesday, November 10. The driver was a student in his 20s and was turning into De Anza college when he struck the cyclist. He has not been arrested.
Our condolences go out to the family and friends of the victim. We have had far too many reminders lately of the dangers faced on the road when people don't stay cautious and observant.
Incidents like these are no reason to stay off your bike, though. Rather, accidents are sad reminders that we need to educate cyclists and motorists about how they can work together to stay safe on the road.
SVBCs Share the Road initiative is working to make all users of the road more aware and more skillful. We hope that by spreading knowledge we can prevent future tragedies.
