  1. This happened near my home. Plenty of people try to race along this part of Ventura Road. It is three lanes and turns to two lanes a block past Anna street. The bike hit that car so hard that it destroyed the bike. Told my kids that the rider doesn’t walk away from something like that. This rider ended up losing out to what could have been. So sad to see someone die that way. It was a choice and maybe plenty of other times the rider got away with it. This time wasn’t one of those times.
