Austin resident injured in bicycle accident

A collision occurred between a bicyclist and automobile in the Austin area recently. The bicycle accident took place in the morning hours of Tuesday, Oct. 1. A female cyclist was injured as a result of the crash. No arrests were reported in the immediate aftermath of the collision.

The bicycle crash took place around 11 on a recent Tuesday morning. The unidentified bicycle rider was in West Austin when the vehicle struck her. The driver remained at the crash site, though further details of what actually occurred were not immediately forthcoming. Authorities have yet to determine how the accident occurred. Moreover, no criminal charges were filed initially.

The driver of the automobile was uninjured as a result of the crash. The operator of the bicycle was taken to a local hospital after sustaining serious head trauma. No further updates have been given on her medical condition.

In Texas, when a person is injured in a bicycle accident, the victim has the right to file personal injury claims against those parties deemed responsible, wholly apart from any criminal charges pursued by law enforcement authorities. Given the severity of any head injury, the victim may be subject to additional hardships, both physical and emotional, stemming from the collision. If the driver or the automobile in this particular accident is found to be liable for the accident, the victim is entitled to compensation for any financial damages resulting from the collision. Liability is dependent on proof of negligence and will ultimately be determined in the civil court of the state of Texas.
