Texas man charged in fatal teenage bicycle accident

Accidents involving a vehicle that strikes a bicyclist generally result in terrible consequences. Though bike lanes are becoming more common, there are still many roads that do not have designated lanes for bicycle riders. A recent hit-and-run bicycle accident tragically claimed the life of a teen hit by a truck along a Texas roadway.

The accident occurred in the evening of Friday, November 18. A 13-year-old boy was riding his bicycle around the area of a local convenience store when he was struck by a 61-year-old man driving a pickup truck. The driver of the truck continued along the road and did not stop to offer assistance.

The teen was transported to a local trauma center in critical condition, but tragically passed away in the following days as a result of his injuries. The driver of the truck turned himself in to the police the following day. He is charged with leaving the scene of an accident causing death, and was booked into jail on a $500,000 bond. Authorities do not believe that alcohol was a factor in the accident at this time.

Families of a Texas victim involved in a similar fatal bicycle accident could benefit from contacting an attorney who has experience in personal injury law and wrongful death litigation. Many expenses can result from such a tragic event that are unexpected, such as medical bills, funeral costs and other financial considerations.  Attorneys in this area of law will be in the best position to discuss the various legal options available.
