CHP: Person on possibly stolen bicycle killed in crash with truck
UPDATE: The Kern County coroner's office on Monday, Sept. 4, identified this bicycle rider as 30-year-old Dennis Ernest Lopez II.
A person on a bicycle died Thursday morning after crashing into a flatbed truck at South Union and Pacheco.
The California Highway Patrol is investigating the possibility that the person had just stolen the bicycle at a nearby Fastrip gas station and was fleeing when the collision occurred.
The person on the bike was male, but the CHP didn't give his age or name.
