La Mesa, CA (August 11, 2018) – The California Highway Patrol has confirmed the identity of the 61-year-old man who was sadly struck and killed by a vehicle last weekend while riding his bicycle on Avocado Boulevard as Daniel Lusteg. The fatal accident was reported to have transpired on Saturday morning, August 4.
The initial investigation into this deadly accident showed that Lusteg had been attempting to merge left onto the boulevard as a motor vehicle tried to pass him. The article continued to explain that Lusteg had veered further to the left and the vehicle which was unable to stop subsequently hit the victim.
The impact of the collision had caused Lusteg to be ejected from his bicycle, suffering serious head injuries as a result. Emergency crews arrived on the scene to assist the man and were reported to have taken him to a local hospital for treatment. Tragically, Lusteg succumbed to his injuries at the hospital a short time later.
