Riverside – Aristeo Valladares was struck by a car and killed on Tuesday while he was riding his bicycle.
Valladares was rushed to Riverside Community Hospital but, sadly, he did not survive his injuries. The Riverside resident was only 47 years old. It is unknown what caused the accident. Sherrif’s agencies are investigating if alcohol, drugs or even speed was a factor on the 45 mph street.
In California, drivers share the road with bicyclists and bicyclists have every right to use the road. Drivers should always allow at least three feet of space when passing a bicyclist. Our condolences go out to the family and friends of Aristeo Valladares in his untimely death.
