A 25-year old Panama City, Florida man, was seriously injured in a bicycle accident while pulling a child carrier behind him. The victim was pulling a three-year-old child when his bicycle was struck by a delivery truck turning out of the driveway of an auto parts store. The child received minor injuries, but both were transported to a local hospital. The delivery driver was ticketed by authorities for failure to yield the right of way to a bicycle at a driveway.
This type of bicycle accident is frightening for pedestrians who pull child carriers with their bicycles. Bicyclists are often hard to see, and when a carrier is pulled behind the cyclist, it puts both riders in danger. It is important that anyone on a bicycle or being pulled by one wears a helmet. Helmets can offer protection from many injuries that are sustained in bicycle accidents. If you are injured in a bicycle accident, it is necessary to contact a personal injury attorney.
