60-year-old bicyclist killed in Imperial Beach
According to a local news article, a 60-year-old bicyclist identified as Kathleen Ann Cua died a day after being struck and critically injured by a driver at the intersection of Palm Avenue and Fourth Street in Imperial Beach.
According to the news report, Kathleen Ann Cua, 60, was riding her bicycle in a cycling group on Saturday evening when she was struck by a vehicle that turned in front of her path at the intersection of Palm Avenue and Fourth Street.
San Diego County sheriff’s Sgt. Karl Miller said that Cua, who was wearing a helmet at the time, was rushed by paramedics to UCSD Medical Center in Hillcrest. Additionally, it was mentioned that the involved driver remained at the scene following the bicycle collision and was cooperative with investigators.
The victim’s condition did not improve, however, and unfortunately Cua was pronounced brain dead on Sunday, said a San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office report.
Currently, this crash remains under investigation as authorities work to determine the exact cause and liable party in the crash.
Further details will be reported at a later time once the investigation has concluded.
