"The motorist, 25-year-old Beaumont man, was not injured, the Pomona Police Department reported." Chalk another one up for Captain Obvious.

I guess if the driver had some type of medical condition that contributed to the accident (diabetic coma) he could have had some injury at the scene. But yeah police reports have details we may see as obvious.

Cal Poly Pomona University have an extremely dangerous part of the road, where bicyclists are killed every year. Cal Poly officials and security do nothing to prevent. A student was killed just a couple of months ago.
