Carol Schreder, a 65-year-old producer and writer, was killed on her 50-mile bike ride Saturday, December 3, when a van towing a trailer jack-knifed and struck Schreder. Schreder was transported from the Mullholland Highway to UCLA's Ronald Reagan Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. The collision was deemed an “unfortunate accident” with no “criminal intent” according to a CHP spokesperson.
   
Loved by her fans, Schreder most notably wrote the film treatment (essentially an extensive outline of the plot before the first draft of the screenplay) for Steve McQueen’s “Tom Horn.” A USC Film School graduate, Schreder attended the university and later created “By the Seat of His Pants,” a documentary about aerospace pioneer William Lear. Schereder, a producer in her own right, also produced two Farah Fawcett films including the telepics “The Burning Bed” and “Between Two Women.”
   
Schreder is survived by her mother, a brother and sister, as well as several other family members. A memorial service has been scheduled at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica this January. A fund set up in her honor, the Carol Schreder Scholarship Fund, will be accepting donations at the American Film Institute in Los Angeles.
