Bicyclist Injured After Being Stuck by a Vehicle on Bear Valley Road in Victorville
Authorities reported a bicyclist who was injured after being struck by a vehicle near the Freeway 15 off-ramp in Victorville early Tuesday morning, June 12. The unfortunate accident occurred at approximately 7:40 a.m. this morning on Bear Valley Road. According to police, the man was reportedly walking with his bicycle in an attempt to cross the road when a vehicle that was using the Freeway 15 off-ramp struck and injured him.
The crash apparently caused an injury to the victims’ leg, although the extent of the injury is currently unknown. While details are still emerging, and the victims’ injuries are not available, it is certain that he was transported to a local hospital for treatment shortly after the incident.
An investigation into this accident is currently being conducted by the police in order to determine if the driver was operating the vehicle negligently, or if the bicyclist may be partly responsible. Authorities will be figuring out if any factors such as speeding, intoxication, or other negligent behavior played a part in the crash. Regardless of fault, we wish for the victims’ health and recovery to be swift and timely.
If the investigation eventually proves that the driver of the vehicle was acting irresponsibly, there will absolutely be grounds for a personal injury claim. Any time that a negligent driver injures a pedestrian and/or bicyclist, there will undoubtedly be large medical bills as well as possible lost wages for which the victim might need compensation. Of course, the decision to take legal action in an effort to recover financial losses is always up to the victim and no one else.
We at Brady Law Group completely understand the detrimental effects that negligent drivers can have on their victims. The most important thing for the victim, in this case, is to remain focused on his recuperation. We passionately hope that crashes like this will stop and that each and every driver on the road will always exercise their absolute best judgment at all times. Although because of the fact that these accidents continue to occur, we have promised to vehemently fight for proper compensation for all victims.
