San Mateo County, CA – Deadly Bicycle Crash on Skyline Boulevard

deadly bicycle crashSan Mateo County, CA (September 20, 2018) – On Wednesday afternoon, September 19, a deadly bicycle crash took place on the Skyline Boulevard and Elk Tree Road that took a woman’s life.

Police have identified the party now as 50-year-old Joy Dianne Covey of Woodside, a former chief financial officer. The fatal crash took place yesterday around 1:30 p.m.

Covey had allegedly been riding her bicycle downhill on the roadway when she suddenly slammed into a Mazda minivan. At the time, a 22-year-old man had been driving the minivan uphill on the road when he turned left directly in front of Covey, putting her into his path.

Covey crashed into the right side of the van and police say that she was pronounced dead at the scene.

The highway was blocked for around two hours.

San Mateo Bicycle Accident

In California, thousands of bicycle accidents take place every year involving motor vehicles. These accidents can easily become very serious and even deadly in nature. You have the right to compensation if you are somebody who was injured or lost someone close to you in an accident.

We wish to extend our sincerest condolences to the friends and family of Joy Covey during this difficult time of grief. We were extremely saddened to hear about this news.

Bicycle accidents are on the rise in California. If you have lost somebody in one of these serious accidents and you believe that another party is responsible for it, you have many rights under California personal injury law. California law expects drivers to share the roadways in a safe manner and follow certain rules on our roadways. Because some drivers do not abide by these rules and are not acting in a prudent and safe manner, serious accidents result. These include drivers failing to give cyclists the right-of-way, speeding in areas where bicyclists tend to ride, and more.

We want to be legal advocates who help you stand up for your rights after you have lost someone close to you in a serious accident. At the Los Angeles Injury Group, we care about your rights and the rights of your loved one. Call us for more information on how we can play a role in your case at 310-954-7248.
