Bicyclist killed in crash

Home Crime News Bicyclist killed in crash
A 64-year-old Klamath Falls, Ore, man riding his bicycle westbound on Highway 20 near Williams was struck and killed last Wednesday.

The Williams Area California Highway Patrol said emergency officials were called to the crash around 3:50 PM on Nov. 20 on, just east of San Jose Road, near the city of Williams.
The CHP said Dale Williams, 26, of Yuba City, was driving a 2017 Ford Utility vehicle when for reasons under investigation, he failed to safely pass the bicyclist and struck him from the rear.

“The collision propelled the rider from the bicycle on to the ground, causing major injuries,” said CHP Officer J. Wakeman, in a report.

The CHP noted that there were very high winds at the time.

The rider was transported to Colusa Medical Center where the bicyclist was to be immediately transported to Enloe by air ambulance, “but he succumbed to his injuries at about 4:42 PM,” the report said.

The collision is still under investigation at this time. Anyone with information to this incident is asked to contact the Williams Area CHP office at (530) 473-2821.

The California Highway patrol would like to remind drivers of the importance of watching for bicyclists. When there is no designated lanes for bicyclists, they have the right to share the road and may be within the right hand side of the lane. It is the responsibility of the approaching driver to safely pass the bicyclist. ■
