Man Killed in Redlands Bicycle Accident at Tennessee Street and San Bernardino Avenue; Ricardo Aguilar Arrested

Redlands, California (May 9, 2020) – A bicyclist died after being struck by a vehicle Thursday night in Redlands, according to authorities.

The fatal crash happened at about 8:00 p.m. Thursday, May 7, at the intersection of Tennessee Street and San Bernardino Avenue.

Authorities said a man, believed to be a transient, was riding his bicycle through the intersection when he was hit by a 1996 Toyota Camry that was traveling a high rate of speed.

A nurse on her way home from her shift at Redlands Community Hospital responded to the accident and rendered aid to the male rider who sustained injuries following the crash.

The patient was then transported to Loma Linda University Medical Center, where he later succumbed to his injuries. His name has not been disclosed pending notification of family.

The driver of the Camry, Ricardo Angel Aguilar, 34, of Mentone, was arrested and booked into the Central Detention Center in San Bernardino on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter and DUI. His bail was set at $250,000.

The accident remains under investigation.

“Far too many bicycle collisions are caused by the carelessness or recklessness of other motorists. Sadly, when this occurs, motorcyclists are the ones who tend to suffer the vast majority of injuries”, according to Arin Khodaverdian, Managing Partner and CEO Alpine Law Group. Under California’s rule of comparative negligence, a victim may be able to collect compensation for injuries and other damages even if you were partly at fault for the accident.
