BEAUMONT – The coroner’s office has released the name of the bicyclist killed in a collision last week in Beaumont. Paul Lynn Pletcher, 70, of Yucaipa was struck by a sedan shortly after 9:10 a.m. Thursday while riding a bike along Champions Drive just west of Cherry Valley Boulevard, the coroner’s office reported.
His head was severely injured and he was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics. He was wearing a helmet, the coroner said.
