MAYHEM: Champion cyclist DEAD after being hit by car in San Francisco
04/11/2023 // Ramon Tomey // Views

A renowned American champion cyclist met his end after being struck by a car while biking in San Francisco.

Ethan Boyes, 44, died on April 4, after a vehicle struck him while on his bike in the afternoon of that day. Boyes was in the bicycle lane on Arguello Boulevard near the Presidio of San Francisco – a public park – when a vehicle swerved from the center line and hit the cyclist head-on, which several eyewitnesses attested to. Paramedics brought Boyes to the hospital, where he died due to serious injuries.

Meanwhile, the driver of the vehicle that hit Boyes also suffered injuries, albeit they were not life-threatening. A spokesperson later confirmed to the San Francisco Chronicle that the unnamed driver was detained. However, law enforcement could not confirm this detail.

The U.S. Park Police (USPP) is continuing its investigation of the incident as it happened within its jurisdiction. USPP is in charge of policing public parks, such as the Presidio of San Francisco. Authorities did not say if the driver behind Boyes' death was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the incident.

Boyes, a resident of San Francisco, was a 2018 and 2019 USA Cycling champion. USA Cycling officials lamented his untimely demise in a statement to KRON 4, where the governing body for bicycle racing outlined the late cyclist's feats.

"Ethan was the reigning Masters' Track World Champion in the Men's 40-44 Time Trial and Sprint Events and part of the winning Team Sprint squad, all earned in fall 2022. Ethan holds the World's Best Performance record for men aged 35 to 39 in the 1,000-meter time trial set in 2015 and several national records. In addition, he was a 10-time national champion throughout his cycling career."


USA Cycling ended its statement by describing Boyes as "an upstanding member of the American track cycling community" whose loss "will be felt at local, regional, national and world events for years."

Boyes' accident happened on the same day as Cash App founder's stabbing

The accident that killed Boyes happened on the same day as the death of 43-year-old Bob Lee. The founder of the mobile payment system Cash App was stabbed while walking around the city early in the morning. Both unfortunate incidents highlight the dangers of living in liberal yet crime-ridden San Francisco.

According to the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD), Lee was attacked in the early morning of April 4 near Rincon Hill and the Bay Bridge. SFPD officers who responded to Lee's 911 call found him unconscious with two stab wounds. Officers called for medics who transported Lee to a nearby hospital, stated a police report.

Unfortunately, the Cash App co-founder succumbed to his injuries. He left behind his wife Krista and their two children. The SFPD said its homicide detail is investigating at the moment, and no arrests have been made in the case as of writing.

Mixed martial artist Jake Shields, Lee's friend, said the Cash App founder was targeted while walking. "He was in the 'good part' of the city and appeared to have been targeted in a random mugging/attack," Shields tweeted.

Meanwhile, Twitter CEO Elon Musk spoke out against the violent crime in the city that claimed Lee's life. He responded to Shields' tweet: "Violent crime in SF is horrific and even if (the) attackers are caught, they are often released immediately." Musk also asked San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins if the City by the Bay was "taking stronger action to incarcerate repeat offenders."
