This past Friday November 30, 2012 a tragic bicycle accident in Palm Springs resulted in the fatality of 38-year-old Corey Holley of La Quinta. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Holley’s family and friends during these difficult times.
Reports indicate that Holley was riding his bicycle at the 1400 block of Palm Canyon Drive near a popular restaurant. Generally speaking, a collision report involving a fatality will take several weeks to complete and police are currently not releasing any additional information. It does not appear that alcohol or drugs were a factor, and the driver of the vehicle that struck Holley stayed at the scene and spoke with the police. No arrests were made.
