Crockett, CA – Bicyclist Killed in Hit-and-Run

hit-and run bicycle crash

Crockett, CA (July 25, 2018) – A bicyclist is dead following a hit-and-run in Crockett on Tuesday.  42 year old Christopher Bunag  died in the crash.  Police say that Bunag was riding his bicycle in the 2000 block of San Pablo Avenue around 7:20 pm.  At that time, a dark-colored pickup truck struck his bicycle. The pickup truck driver fled the scene just after the crash.  As of Wednesday, the driver has not been located.  Police are combing the area for a truck with heavy front-end damage.

Additional police investigation reveals that Bunag was in front of the truck.  His bicycle was struck from behind and he was thrown into the roadway.  Bunag was wearing a helmet and protective gear.  At this time, authorities do not believe that Bunag was negligent in causing the crash.  The Contra Costa Divison of the California Highway Patrol continues to investigate the crash.   No additional information is available at this time.

Bicycle Accidents in Los Angeles

Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of Christopher Bunag, the bicyclist killed in this crash.  A motor vehicle accident can be a devastating event for victims and their loved ones.  There is no way to adequately describe the emotional pain that family and friends feel after a motor vehicle death.

A hit-and-run case is especially tragic.  In these cases, the responsible driver attempts to escape liability by fleeing the scene.  Hit-and-run carries both civil and criminal penalties.  The driver faces jail time and can also have to pay money as part of a civil suit.

Hit-and-run cases present complicated issues involving insurance coverage.  Hit-and-run drivers do not always carry insurance.  Other times, police never locate the driver.  In these instances, you need a good personal injury attorney to help you get the compensation you deserve.
