A 21-year old man riding his bicycle on State Route 247 was struck by a vehicle recently. He died at the scene.
The California Highway Patrol reports that in 2008, San Bernardino County was the scene of 8 bicycle deaths and a little less than 300 injuries as a result of bicycle accidents.
The California Highway Patrol officers are investigating the cause of this fatal accident. They are looking at all the issues to determine what side of the road the young man was riding on, and if the auto driver was distracted, under the influence or speeding. They want to see who was at fault.
I urge the deceased's family to consult with an experienced San Bernardino personal injury attorney who will review all the issues involved in this fatal accident and make sure the negligent party is held accountable.
