It saddens me to report that a bicyclist and BLV member (mregalado89) was struck and killed by a hit and run driver in Henderson on Saturday. Mario rode with BLV on a few night rides. He was also a member of the Cox Communications Cycling Team. My heart goes out to his friends and family at this difficult time.
Mario was riding his bike on Eastern Avenue, near Evansville Ave around 2pm on Saturday. He was struck from behind by a vehicle switching lanes. The family is asking for help in locating the driver. Please view the Channel 13’s Action News video for more information about the incident and how you can help:
Please be safe out there everyone. We’ve had a string of accidents over the weekend. One of them taking Mario’s life. Another accident on Sunday took another bicyclist’s life, Star Laine Walters. I didn’t know Star personally, but it’s still tragic all the same.
Rest in Peace Mario and Star.
