A hit-and-run bicycle accident in Texas results in injury

An auto-pedestrian accident can have serious consequences to the pedestrian. Understandably, injuries suffered by the victim can be significant simply due to the weight and force of a vehicle. Sadly, these accidents seem to be happening more frequently across Texas. Recently, a hit-and-run bicycle accident left a man injured and has police trying to find the person responsible.

Local authorities in Cedar Park are currently investigating an accident that left a cyclist injured. The victim, a 28-year-old male, was riding his bike when he was hit by a small SUV. The driver reportedly left the scene of the crash, leaving the victim in a ditch on the side of the road. The victim was transported to a local medical facility for care.

Police have released information regarding the vehicle involved including the make, model and noticeable damage. They are asking anyone with information relating to this accident to please come forward so they can solve this case. When found, the driver responsible for this accident will most likely face criminal charges for their actions.

A hit-and-run crash can be devastating to the victim. Until the driver is found, the victim will be left with not only having to recover from the physical injuries, but also looking for answers as to how or why it happened in the first place. When local authorities find the person responsible, the victim, if he desires, may file a personal injury claim against them in order to recoup the financial losses that have incurred due to the accident. If the driver is deemed liable for the bicycle accident, a Texas civil court could award the victim monetary compensation for his injuries, medical expenses, pain and suffering and any other expenses recoverable under Texas laws.
