David Castillo, 45, of Folsom, was riding his bicycle westbound on Alexandria Drive at 8:10 a.m., said CHP Officer Quinn Cuthbertson.
Meanwhile, Yiwei Chen, 51, of Folsom, was driving his blue 2005 Dodge Neon northbound on Sophia Parkway, which meets Alexandria at a T intersection.
“(Chen) had the right of way,” Cuthbertson said. Castillo had a stop sign. For “an unknown reason,” Castillo did not stop, and “pulled directly into the path” of Chen, who hit him broadside, Cuthbertson said.
Castillo sustained major injuries. “I hear he is not doing very well,” Cuthbertson said. “Serious injuries.”
El Dorado Hills Fire Department’s Mike Lillienthal said that Castillo was taken by Cal Star 3 to UC Davis Medical Center in critical condition.
According to the Green Valley Mortuary’s Website, Castillo died on July 7. His service is scheduled for July 12 at 2 p.m. at the Green Valley Cemetery in Rescue.
