A bicycle accident occurred in Beavercreek, Ohio around 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday. According 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.
