Sonoma County, CA – Cyclist Injured In Hit And Run Accident

Sonoma County, CA (October 16, 2018) – According to sources in the California Highway Patrol, a hit-and-run accident took place shortly before noon on Monday morning when a pick-up truck struck a man riding a bicycle on Highway 1 near Leeward Spur in Sea Ranch. The driver of the truck paused momentarily and then fled down the road.

The driver of the truck is reported as having been traveling south well in excess of the posted speed limit when he struck the bicycle rider, knocking him into the road and leaving him there. The truck was described as dark blue or black in color and having a flatbed and pulling a white trailer. The passenger side mirror from the absconding truck was later found at the scene.

The cyclist was promptly flown to Santa Rosa Hospital and no further information on him is available at this time.

The California Highway Patrol’s Santa Rosa area office has asked that anyone with any information regarding this incident please contact them at 707-588-1400.

We offer our sympathies to the injured party and hope for a speedy recovery as well as a swift resolution to this case.

Hit-and-run accidents are a far more serious matter than most other types of traffic accidents because they absolutely involve criminal charges. It is against the law to leave the scene of an accident for ANY reason. This act of cowardice leaves the injured party alone and defenseless, hoping a good Samaritan will come to their aid. Even if the hit-and-run culprit does come to be identified and face criminal charges, liability still has to be proven if the injured intends on filing any sort of a civil suit. Proving liability can sometimes be tricky and is a fairly technical process. Hiring a capable attorney with an extensive knowledge of the laws can greatly assist you in your attempts to meet at the required legalities of proving that liability. Being able to prove the driver’s liability beyond a shadow of a doubt will be necessary for the insurance companies involved and the courts as well.

Hit and run cases are incredibly complex and detailed at the best of times. Working with an attorney from Los Angeles Injury Group shifts the burden of all this investigation and paperwork off of your shoulders and on to ours. A practiced attorney with previous experience in this area is your best chance at getting the settlement you deserve. For a free consultation, give us a call at 310-954-7248
