Bicyclist Lin Kim Dies in Riverside Accident
RIVERSIDE, CA (February 2, 2021) – Police identified the bicyclist who died in a hit-and-run accident earlier this month in Riverside.
The accident happened around 6:30 a.m. on January 7 near the intersection of Colorado Avenue and Jackson Street.
According to a preliminary investigation, 66-year-old Lin Tae Kim of Riverside rode his bicycle south on Jackson in the bike lane for his morning exercise. As he entered the southbound traffic lanes, a passing vehicle struck him.

Witnesses called 911. Officials transported Kim to Parkview Community Hospital, where he died a short time later.
