Anyone with information about the case, the 16th fatal collision on San Jose city streets in 2021, is asked to call Detective Malvido at 408.277.4654.


  1. The article doesn’t say “crossing the lanes,” but that the operator was in one lane.

    We know activists and typical self-centered types might do much, but really, on a unicycle toy? (“Take the lane,” as the Forester cultist types say drolly?)

    That’s “micro-mobility” for you.

  2. He was in a bike lane he was clipped by a car which caused him to fall. The first car said she pulled over to help him .That was stupid she should have stayed behind him instead she went around him which caused the car behind her to run him over and kill him. The other person needs to be found
