Truck Crashes Into Bicyclist Sacramento


Truck Crashes Into Bicyclist Sacramento

I’m Ed Smith, a South Sacramento personal injury attorney. A bicyclist was struck by a truck in the South Sacramento vicinity during the afternoon hours of Sunday, March 26, 2017. Unfortunately, the cyclist suffered traumatic injuries as a result of the collision.

What Happened?

A bicyclist was traveling along Calvine Road in the vicinity of Elk Grove Florin Road at about 2:40 pm. According to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), a truck crashed into the cyclist.

When paramedics arrived at the scene of the bicycle accident, they discovered the cyclist face down with facial injuries. Fortunately, the individual suffered non-life threatening injuries as a result of this accident. The injured bicylist was transported via ambulance to the hospital for treatment.

What Caused the Collision?

It is still too early to determine what caused the bicycle accident. A Traffic Collision Report generally takes seven to ten days to be processed by authorities. If you have been struck by a vehicle while riding a bike, please contact an experienced personal injury lawyer.

Preventing Accidents

An important rule to keep in mind while driving is to share the roadway with other motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists. It is crucial to lower your speed when driving because speeding is among one of the leading causes of accidents throughout California today.

Bicycle Accidents

Bicycle accidents are among the most serious type of accidents. The reason behind this is that a bicyclist has no form of protection against a moving vehicle. Bicycle accidents tend to occur oftentimes due to single car collisions where a motorist crashes into a cyclist. Victims of these accidents may suffer traumatic, catastrophic or even grave injuries. It is best to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer for more information.
