Community advocates for change after cyclist’s death in Cathedral City hit-and-run

The death of a 31-year-old Palm Springs woman earlier this month remains under investigation, but members of the community have banded together to honor her life.

The deadly hit-and-run collision happened earlier this month in Cathedral City while the victim was riding her bicycle.

Cathedral City police identified the victim as Angeline Margaret Shipley. News Channel 3 reached out to the department for any updates on the investigation and were told there is no new information available related to the crime and police have not identified a suspect.

Investigators believe the suspect vehicle is possibly a 2014-2019 Nissan Versa. The vehicle is believed to be dark colored and should have major front-end damage with missing parts.

A group of community members who advocate for bicycle safety installed a ghost bike Tuesday morning as a reminder of not just the tragedy, but the need for continued safety improvements to prevent future incidents like that from happening.

The bike honoring Shipley is the 48th to be installed and marks the same number of bicyclists killed by a vehicle in the Coachella Valley since 2003.
