A 62-year old named Robert Horton was killed while riding a bicycle, in Santa Ana, near the on-ramp to northbound I-5, on Monday night, at around 5:25 pm, according to the O.C. Register.
Horton’s residence was not revealed by the Orange County Coroner’s office, which identified his remains.
Horton was riding through a crosswalk, on a surface street by the freeway on-ramp, when a 2002 BMW 325 struck him as the vehicle was turning left onto the on-ramp, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Horton passed away at the UCI Medical Center in Orange at 6:06 p.m., as reported by the Coroner’s office said.
Horton’s next of kin has not yet been revealed.

This is why we need to extend the Santiago Creek Bike Trail from the I-5 underpass along the creek to Flower St. – a safe off-road trail that avoids the collision of bicyclists and cars. The NIMBYS who oppose this route are supporting an on-road bike trail that would put the trail on Main Street and would cross the very same I-5 on-ramp at which this latest victim was killed. Wherever possible, bike trails should be off-road trails to protect bicyclists.
Wont happen until the resident give up their property and beside too many hoodlum and druggies walking /hanging out under the freeway
