Sapphire Energy Executive Killed in Crash

The corporate controller at San Diego’s Sapphire Energy was killed earlier this week when an out-of-control sport-utility vehicle swerved into a bike path while he was bicycling home from work. A close friend told The San Diego Union-Tribune that Poway, CA-resident Nick Venuto, 40, was an avid bicyclist and married father of two. Venuto was pedaling home from work on a bike path along State Route 56 Tuesday evening when he was struck by a Ford Escape driven by 27-year-old Sheena Saranita after she lost control of her vehicle. Another bicylist, Baron Herdelin-Doherty also was hit, and was taken to Scripps Memorial Hospital in critical condition.
