[01-10-2021] Bicyclist and Motorcyclist Killed After a Traffic Collision in JamulAn unidentified bicyclist was killed after colliding with a motorcycle in Jamul on Sunday morning, January 10.

The accident took place on Otay Lakes Road near the Pio Pico RV Resort and Campground at around 9:30 a.m. A group of cyclists was reportedly riding eastbound along Otay Lakes Road when a passing motorcyclist suddenly struck one of the bicyclists.

Both the motorcyclist and the bicyclist sustained fatal injuries from the crash. They were pronounced dead at the scene. The identity of the victims has not been disclosed.

Information about the crash is limited at the moment.

Motorcycle-Bicycle Collision Investigation is Underway

Local authorities are currently investigating the fatal crash. They will attempt to determine the factors that affected the accident.

Bicyclists are vulnerable to the dangers on the road. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, approximately 840 cyclists were killed in motor-vehicle related accidents in 2016, accounting for 2 percent of traffic fatalities.

Bicycle crashes often happen in urban areas, where cars and bicycles interact the most. Cars hitting bikes is the leading cause of bicyclist injuries and deaths throughout the state. Common reasons for this are drivers failing to yield the right of way, running a stop sign or red light, or not paying attention enough on the road, and texting while driving. Drunk driving and careless driving can also lead to a fatal bicycle collision.

Although motorists would often escape unharmed, bicyclists suffer the most from these types of accidents as they can sustain significant injuries or even potentially die.
