Bicyclist dies of injuries suffered in Howe Avenue collision

A bicyclist struck by a vehicle on Howe Avenue earlier this month has died from injuries suffered in the crash.

The Sacramento County coroner identified the man as Cristobal Corona, 24, of Marysville.

A Sacramento Police Department activity log notes that Corona was traveling west on Swarthmore Drive at Howe Avenue near the Campus Commons neighborhood at about 6:50 a.m. on Oct. 14 when his bike was hit by a vehicle headed south on Howe.

Fire Department medical personnel transported Corona to a hospital with serious injuries. He was pronounced dead at 6:20 p.m. Thursday, about eight days after the crash.

The Police Department’s major collision investigation unit is investigating.
