A San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department veteran officer was killed while riding his bicycle on an Irvine road the other day. Although he was part of the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department, he lived in Irvine.
The detective was struck by an SUV and taken to a nearby hospital where he died from injuries he sustained. The 35-year old SUV driver and her infant child were not hurt.
Officers are investigating the accident to determine what happened; it is not clear which lanes either vehicle were in. In addition, they do not believe alcohol or drugs were a factor - no arrests were made.
