In a troubling series of events on the late evening of September 10th, Huntington Beach authorities are actively seeking the whereabouts of a driver believed to have targeted three separate bicyclists within a span of less than an hour, tragically resulting in the loss of one life.

These harrowing incidents unfolded in close proximity to Spring View Middle School, as reported by Jessica Cuchilla, spokesperson for the local police department. The unsettling sequence began with the initial collision, transpiring at approximately 10 p.m., at the intersection of Edwards Street and Warner Avenue. In this unsettling encounter, a male cyclist reported a black Toyota sedan deliberately sideswiping him, leaving him with minor injuries.

Approximately thirty minutes later, another distressing incident unfolded, occurring just a quarter of a mile north of the first collision, at the intersection of Brad Drive and Edwards. Once again, a cyclist found themselves targeted by a black Toyota vehicle, experiencing an aggressive sideswipe. This second victim expressed a belief that the act had been intentional, raising significant concerns regarding the driver’s motives.

The culmination of this disconcerting sequence transpired 15 minutes later, at 10:45 p.m., near the junction of Springdale Street and Heil Avenue, conveniently situated around the corner from the second collision. Here, a black Toyota sedan was involved in a collision with yet another cyclist before hastily departing the scene, compounding the urgency of the ongoing investigation. Authorities remain steadfast in their efforts to identify and locate the responsible driver as they work tirelessly to bring justice to the victims and their families.
