to Beavercreek Police, the incident took place when a man on a bicycle
was struck by a vehicle. Allegedly, the biker was riding westward, and
the vehicle was traveling eastbound, and they collided at the intersection
of Shakertown and Grange Hall. Tragically, the biker is suffering from
severe injuries due to the accident, and the driver of the vehicle has
minor injuries. The cause is unknown, but it has been said that wet conditions
could have been a factor when the accident took place.
According to the Pedestrian Bicycle and Information Center, 726 people
passed away in the year 2014 as a result of bicycle/vehicle collisions.
While there are many causes of bicycle/vehicle accidents, some of the
biggest factors are distracted drivers, failure of drivers to yield/stop
at a sign, and motorists turning onto the path of a cyclist. Commonly,
in the instance of a bicycle/vehicle collision, the driver of the vehicle
is at fault. While bikers often travel defensively and have little distractions,
drivers of motor vehicles often operate their vehicles distractedly and
with less care.
