Texas bicycle accident: Still looking for hit-and-run driver

A typical day, riding her bike home after work, resulted in the loss of a Texas woman's life when she was struck by a car. The bicycle accident turned into a hit-and-run incident when the driver left the scene. Local authorities are still looking for the driver responsible.

The accident occurred recently at a local intersection, when the 24-year-old victim was riding her bike home from her job at a local grocery store. She was apparently struck by a vehicle that, according to bystanders, quickly left the scene without calling for help or checking on the cyclist. Witnesses to the accident called 911, and the victim was rushed to the local hospital. She later succumbed to her injuries.

Unfortunately, witnesses were not able to give police details of the car that hit her. Local authorities are still investigating this accident and asking anyone with information to come forward. The victim was a big part of a cyclist movement in Houston and believed in the ability of drivers and bicyclists to safely share the road. A memorial ride has been scheduled in her honor.

Victims of a bicycle accident are often left severely injured or suffer from fatal injuries. When the driver responsible for this accident is found, aside from any criminal charges against them, they may also face a wrongful death claim from the victim's family. If found negligent in the cause of the crash, and if liability is confirmed by a Texas civil court, the family could be awarded monetary compensation. While it can't bring back their loved one, it can help recoup any financial damages that may have resulted from the accident.
