LOMA LINDA: Cyclist crashes, injures head, triggers rescue

LOMA LINDA: Cyclist crashes, injures head, triggers rescue


A man fell while mountain biking, injured his head and became disoriented triggering a search and rescue in Loma Linda, sheriff’s officials said.

The man’s wife called the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department about 9 a.m. Friday, April 3, saying her 36-year-old husband, Edsel Montemayor, of San Diego County, who had gone to Hulda Crooks Park to ride, called her saying he crashed, hit his head and didn’t know where he was, sheriff’s officials said in a news release.

Deputies found the man’s vehicle parked at the far south end of the park near the beginning of a trail. Officials began searching the trail and within minutes rescuers in a helicopter found the cyclist about a mile south of his vehicle, the release said.

“Upon contact with deputies, Mr. Montemayer was alert but had visible injuries consistent with a bicycle accident,” officials wrote in the release.

Paramedics took him to Loma Linda University Medical Center for treatment of a possible concussion.
