18 year old Aran Astesan of Nevada City was taken by Cal Star to Sutter Roseville Hospital because of the extent of his injuries. The CHP says this accident is a reminder for bicycle riders to maintain a safe speed for conditions and wear a helmet.
I was hit last year. Reflective vest, lights front and back as well as a flashing arm band go with me every time I ride! Of course good judgement goes a long way! Thanks for the reminder!
