Sunnyside High School Teacher Killed In Morning Bicycle Accident

Posted: Updated:
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

A Fresno high school teacher was killed Tuesday in an early morning collision with a Jeep, the California Highway Patrol said.

Jim Healy, a technology teacher at Sunnyside High School in Fresno, died after his bicycle was struck by a Jeep on Auberry Road, just north of Copper Avenue shortly after 5:30 a.m.

Healy was riding with a group of bicyclists when the driver of the Jeep approached the group of riders.

According to CHP reports, Fitch slowed down to about 55 miles per hour and attempted to pass the group of riders. That's when officers say that Healy steered his bike--possibly trying to make a U-turn--into the path of the Jeep.

Fitch attempted to avoid Healy, but the front of the Jeep struck him, the CHP said.

Healy was transported to Community Regional Medical Center where he later died.  

Susan Bedi, spokeswoman for the Fresno Unified School District, said that Healy was the 'go-to" person for Sunnyside's technology needs.

"He will be missed by not only the Sunnyside community but the entire district," Bedi said."Our thoughts are with the family during this difficult time."
