Friends and family mourned the loss of a dedicated mother who was killed while riding her bicycle on a busy stretch of road in Huntington Beach.
The call came in at about 8:30 p.m. on Sunday. Genevieve Ann Hall, 34, of Huntington Beach, was riding a bike when she was hit broadside by the driver of a late-model Chevrolet Impala, police said. She was found lying in the road near the busy area of Beach Boulevard and Utica Avenue (map).
"The bicycle was a couple feet away from her, so she must have landed three or four feet, flying," witness Emiliano Galvez said.
A memorial now marks the intersection where Hall lost her life.

"She was a mother with a child who depended on her," said Daniel Helper, who worked with Hall recently at a tax company where she was a sign waver. "That driver has now affected a lot more than just one life.
Neighbors described Hall as a mother first, who worked two jobs to help support her son.
"The pain is even harder for those related to her -- who love her -- because (the driver) didn't care enough to stop," neighbor Gabe Mauser added.
Authorities are asking for the public’s help to find the driver of a 2006 to 2013 white Chevrolet Impala without fog lights.
Police were looking at surveillance footage Monday to see if it would shed light on who the driver was.
"We’re hoping someone who would have seen what happened can get back to us,” Huntington Beach Police Sgt. David Dereszynski said Monday. "That will allow us to develop more information so we can put a case together."
The front of the car will have damage consistent with hitting a bike, police said.
