Municipalities can create their own laws allowing other people to be allowed to direct traffic per vehicle code section 21100(e), but again, permit/training/permission required (varies by local laws)"

According to the report in the Sentinel on Tuesday, the truck and the bike were traveling in the same direction. Thus, the truck must have been passing the cyclist when the accident occurred. How then was the trucker unaware of the cyclist? If the cyclist was anywhere in the lane, the trucker should have seen him and should have realized the danger. At the least, then, the trucker should have been looking in his rear view mirror as he passed to make sure the cyclist was OK, yet we now read that he was completely unaware of the accident until he was pulled over, miles from the scene.
Something's wrong here.
