A woman riding her bicycle was struck by a car and suffered serious injuries. The woman was taken to a nearby hospital to be treated. Bicycle accidents like this are very serious and the woman should schedule an initial consultation with an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as she can.
The man who hit her was driving a Honda CRV; he was cited for not maintaining a clear distance ahead of his vehicle. The bicycle accident occurred when the man came over a small hill and hit the woman from behind.
A bicycle accident can be a horrific event, much like pedestrian accidents or motorcycle accidents. In a bicycle accident, even if the bicyclist is wearing a helmet, they can still be seriously injured or even die from the collision.
Some of the ways bicyclists can avoid any type of accident with other vehicles is by:
- Wearing Bright or Reflective Clothing
- Avoiding Riding Their Bike at High Traffic Times
- Ride with Traffic
- Ride with Tail Lights and Head Light
