Child killed in Texas bicycle accident

Numerous children in Texas and across the country choose to ride their bikes to school everyday. Unfortunately, this often places these young riders on the sides of some busy streets. Sadly, one child was recently involved in a bicycle accident with an automobile which, to the dismay of his family and the local community, resulted in the boy's death.

According to reports, a 13-year-old was struck and killed earlier this month as he rode his bike to school. This accident occurred in a small town in eastern Texas. It is unknown if the child received any medical care before his passing.

At this time, it is also unknown if any criminal charges are pending against the person believed responsible for this incident. Police have indicated that the driver did initially leave the scene of the accident; however, he or she did return to talk to deputies. No further details regarding the cause of the crash have not been reported to the public.

The death of a child, no matter how it comes, is devastating. In this case, the fatal bicycle accident has likely left the victim's loved ones emotionally traumatized by his sudden and unexpected death, as well as financially damaged due to any expenses incurred as a result -- such as funeral costs. The child's surviving family members may, if they so choose, file wrongful death and -- if applicable -- survival action claims against the driver deemed responsible for this loss of life. If negligence can be successfully established in a Texas civil court, a monetary judgment may be granted for any damages recoverable in accordance with applicable state laws.
