LOS ANGELES — The city of Santa Ana, California, is in the midst of installing hundreds of lighting devices and batteries in a public space in response to the fatal crash of a bicyclist that killed a driver on Sunday.
The devices, installed in a bike lane in the intersection of California Avenue and Orange Avenue, will allow people to light up the night sky during the Super Bowl and other events.
It will also be a great way for Santa Ana to honor the memory of the late Angelica Gómez, who was struck and killed by a bicyclists vehicle in downtown Santa Ana in February.
Gómex was an avid cyclist who was on her way to a dance party when she was killed in the collision that occurred on California Avenue just before 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Santa Ana Police Sgt. Scott Kiel told the Orange County Register.
Golm’s family had been in the area, and she was on the way to the dance party with friends, Kiel said.
“She was on a bicycle,” Kiel continued.
“She was not impaired.
She was wearing a helmet.”
Golmex, a mother of two, had a license to operate a motor vehicle.
She lived in Santa Ana and had a valid driver’s license, police said.
Her husband, Jose, who also lived in the city, told the Register that he and Gómes family had a very good relationship.
