Sam Felder died on Thursday, April 11, following post-surgery complications, according to an announcement posted on "Sam's Supporters," a fundraising website formed to assist his family. Friends from across the country have been posting condolences, describing him as "an amazing person." He is survived by wife Julie and their young daughter.
Mr. Felder, a 33-year-old Menlo Park resident whose LinkedIn profile stated he worked at Facebook as a product design manager, was taken to a hospital in critical condition after the Nov. 18 crash, which occurred at Bayfront Expressway and Marsh Road.
The car's driver, a 33-year-old Union City woman, was determined not to be at fault, Menlo Park Police spokeswoman Nicole Acker said, after investigators found that the bicyclist, traveling east, ran a red light as the car was heading northwest with a green light.
