The bicyclist was later identified as Stanton resident Deborah Gresham, according to the coroner’s office.

Deputies dispatched at 7:41 p.m. Friday to the 7100 block of Cerritos Avenue found Gresham, who was pronounced dead at the scene, in the westbound lanes of Cerritos Avenue, according to Lt. John Roche of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.
