On 03/23/2022, at about 4:54 PM, Humboldt Place CHP gained a report of a crash involving a bicyclist and a automobile at the intersection of Herrick Avenue and Elk River Road. Staff from Eureka Law enforcement Office, Humboldt Bay Hearth Section, Humboldt County Sheriff’s Business, Metropolis Ambulance of Eureka and California Highway Patrol responded to the scene.
Based on the preliminary investigation, CHP has determined that a 1994 Dodge Ram was remaining driven westbound on Herrick Avenue, approaching Elk River Highway. A bicyclist, whose name is at the moment getting withheld pending notification of following of kin, was riding northbound on Elk River Street approaching Herrick Avenue. For reasons but to be identified, the bicyclist entered the intersection, driving into the westbound lane of Herrick Avenue, and straight into the route of the Dodge. The bicyclist was struck by the entrance remaining of the Dodge, resulting in big accidents. The driver of the Dodge, 59 12 months old Tom Hull of Field’s Landing, remained on scene and cooperated with legislation enforcement’s investigation of the crash. Mr. Hull did not get any injuries as a end result of this crash. Sad to say, due to the severity of the accidents, the bicyclist succumbed to their injuries on scene and was pronounced deceased by emergency clinical staff.
The California Highway Patrol extends its condolences to the relatives of the deceased, and thanks all responding agencies for their help in managing the scene. The CHP Humboldt Space business office is continuing its investigation and asks everyone who witnessed the crash, or has any added information associated to the crash, to get hold of the California Highway Patrol at 707-822-5981.
