Bicyclist Hit and Killed by Vehicle on Willow Glen Drive in East County

East County, California – A 32-year-old man from La Mesa was killed Wednesday night in an East County collision on Willow Glen Drive just west of Dehesa Road.

The California Highway Patrol said the man was riding an Electra Townie bicycle eastbound on Willow Glen Drive when he was hit by an Infiniti QX60 SUV heading the same direction.

The bicyclist was ejected from the bike onto the roadway following the impact of the crash and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The incident happened at around 7:20 p.m.

CHP said the rider was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. His name was not disclosed pending family notification.

The SUV driver, a 48-year-old El Cajon man, remained at the scene and cooperated with the authorities.

Alcohol and drugs did not play a role in the crash, CHP said.

An investigation into the crash is ongoing.

Arin Khodaverdian, CEO and Managing Attorney of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights. Swift action by an intelligent and experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

“Usually, clients hire me immediately after their first consultation because they quickly figure out that I will treat them like family. I lift a weight off their shoulders immediately. That is my job. We simply leave no stone unturned – period. We go after everyone and everything. There is no other way to ensure justice,” Mr. Khodaverdian states.

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. We have numerous other 6-figure settlements within 30 days. While these results are atypical and do not predict future outcomes, justice in these cases helped bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the families.”
