Man riding motorized bicycle struck, killed in San Bernardino
A 24-year-old man was struck and killed by a vehicle as he rode a motorized bicycle through the curves on E Street east of Little Mountain Drive in San Bernardino on Thursday evening.
Around 6 p.m., the man — later identified by San Bernardino County coroner’s officials as Brian Brownstein, of San Bernardino — was riding the bicycle north along E Street approaching the curves where it becomes Kendall Drive when a vehicle driven by a 70-year-old woman traveling in the same direction struck the rider, according to Lt. Mike Madden with the San Bernardino Police Department.
Paramedics took Brownstein to a hospital, where he later died.
The driver of the car stopped and cooperated with police. Drugs and alcohol are not believed to be a factor in the crash.
San Bernardino police are investigating the crash.
