February 11, 2021 (El Cajon ) – A La Mesa man, 32, died at the scene of an accident last night in unincorporated El Cajon.
The cyclist was riding an Electra Townie bicycle in the bike lane eastbound on Willow Glen Drive west of Dehesa Road around 7:20 p.m. when a silver Infiniti QX60 driven by an El Cajon man drifted to the right and struck the cyclist, who was ejected onto the roadway’s shoulder.
“Fire personnel were dispatched to the scene and pronounced the bicyclist deceased. The driver of the Infinity was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash. The bicyclist was not wearing a helmet at the time of the collision,” said Officer Travis Garrow with the California Highway Patrol.
He added, “The driver of the Infinity is cooperating with the investigation. Alcohol or drugs are not believed to be a factor in this crash.”
This investigation is still ongoing.
