Individual Killed in Bicycle Accident
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
An accident involving a
bicycle and a vehicle took place recently in Tampa, Florida. The accident is being
investigated for further information, but it is known that the crash was fatal.
The Missouri Department of Public Safety reports that in the year 2011,
664 bicycle accidents were reported in Missouri. A person was killed in
a bicycle crash every 15.1 hours. Additionally, about a third of bicyclists’
injuries are caused by being struck by a car. Drivers are often negligent
in the case of bicycle-vehicle accidents, as bike riders tend to ride
carefully and defensively since they have little protection. Common contributors
to these kinds of accidents are: driving distracted, failure to follow
traffic signs, and improper lane use. In order to avoid bicycle-vehicle
accidents, it is important that both parties follow traffic laws and remain
focused when on the road.
