Fatal Bicycle Accidents in Southern California

Our thoughts go out to the victim of this bicycle accident.  We know how hard it is to lose a loved one in a tragic crash.

This accident remains under investigation.  Police will have to take a complete look at the crash and all surrounding circumstances.  They will interview any witnesses and consider the area where the accident occurred.  Officers will also take physical measurements from the accident scene.  Once a thorough accident reconstruction is complete, police will determine who is at fault for the crash.

Vehicle drivers have a duty to ensure the safety of all others on the road, including bicyclists.  Negligent actions such as distracted driving, speeding and failing to yield can all lead to collisions. Unfortunately, collisions with a bicyclist can be fatal.  This crash is a sad reminder that bicycle accidents are often very serious and catastrophic.
