Man, I sure hating seeing this stuff and I’m sorry to say that Jorge Alvarado, a Bahati Foundation rider, was struck and killed while on a training ride yesterday in Southern California.
A San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman said Roraff, a high school senior, was traveling north on Greenspot Road at more than 70 mph when he lost control and came across the road to strike Alvarado, who was traveling south.
The sheriff’s department spokeswoman, Cynthia Beavers, told VeloNews that Roraff was street racing with students in two other vehicles at the time of the incident. Roraff tried to pass the vehicles and lost control of his Honda Civic, veering across the southbound traffic lane and into Alvarado’s path, she said.
The district attorney will determine whether charges will be filed upon review of the full accident report, which, according to Beavers, may take several weeks to complete.
“Based on the information investigators have obtained, chances are good that charges will be filed,” said Beavers.
