Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Two bicyclists have died in two separate traffic
accidents this week in Kansas City. According to officials, a 75-year-old man has
died from injuries sustained in an accident in Topeka. Police say the
man was struck by a car on September 20 and was hospitalized for weeks.
Officials say on Wednesday the man passed away. Shawnee County Police
are still investigating the accident to determine who had the right-of-way.
Officials say once the investigation is complete, the case will be handed
to the Shawnee County District Attorney's Office.
Another fatal accident occurred on October 3 when a bicyclist was struck
and killed in Eureka. According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, a vehicle
rear-ended the bicyclist on U.S. 54, just east of the Greenwood County.
Police say the bicyclist landed in a ditch and died. Officials report
the driver of the vehicle stayed on the scene and was unharmed. No charges
have been filed, but the accident is still under investigation. Police
have identified the victim as a 60-year-old man from Western Australian.
Bicycle accidents are frequent and cause unexpected trauma and even fatal
injuries. If a bicyclist survives the accident, they are frequently left
with serious and debilitating injuries such as broken bones, traumatic
brain injuries, and spinal damage. If you’ve been a victim of a
