Carmichael Bicyclist Identified in Weekend Fatality
A Carmichael bicyclist who was killed in a traffic accident on June 1 has been identified by the county coroner’s office. She was 65-year-old Carmichael resident Linda Barrere. According to the report by the California Highway Patrol (CHP), the accident occurred along El Camino Avenue close to Landwood Way at around 8:30 in the evening. Barrere was going south on Landwood when she rode into the traffic on El Camino, reportedly without stopping. The driver of an SUV that was going east along El Camino was unable to stop in time and struck the bicycle rider in the intersection. Barrere died at the accident scene. It was determined by the CHP that neither drugs nor alcohol contributed to the accident. I would like to convey my sympathy to the family and friends of Ms. Barrere for their tragic loss.
