Woman Killed in Bicycle Accident on Court Street

Manuel Mesa Faces DUI, Other Charges in Fatal Visalia Accident

Fatal Accident 5

Visalia, CA (September 11, 2019) – A woman was killed in a bicycle crash in Visalia. The fatal accident occurred on the afternoon of September 11 on Court Street.

A 65-year-old woman was riding her bicycle down Modoc Bike Trail and didn’t stop for traffic as she crossed the Court Street. She was hit by a driver, later identified as Manuel Mesa, 40.

Mesa stopped but didn’t help her. Instead, he started to drive away. The woman was still in front of his vehicle. As she tried to get up, Mesa hit her again and dragged her 200 yards beneath his Honda. The woman was taken to a local hospital, where she later died.

Mesa then fled the accident scene. Officers later found him. He was found to be under the influence of alcohol. He was arrested for hit and run, DUI and homicide.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to the friends and loved ones of the victim.

New California Law Extends Time For Filing Child Sexual Abuse Claims

On October 13, 2019, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a law allowing victims of child sex abuse additional time to report the abuse and file lawsuits. A flurry of allegations of Catholic priest sexual abuse of minors, as well as former U.S. Olympic gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar’s 2018 conviction, led to the introduction of the legislation.
