Family hurt and angered over fatal bicycle accident

The most mundane activities can sometimes end in the most tragic ways. Nothing may be more commonplace than going for a bicycle ride, especially for an older, more experienced rider. However, given the wrong circumstances, that ride could end in a serious or even fatal bicycle accident. One Texas family is now trying to comprehend this nightmare.

The accident occurred late on a Monday night, though details are still unknown. A residence or business that was located close to the scene purportedly has video surveillance that appears to show the 61-year-old rider being struck twice by two separate vehicles. A police investigation has determined that the man and his bicycle were dragged an estimated 50 feet before the vehicle was free of the bike.

The man was discovered with mortal injuries along the road by local police. He was transported to a medical facility where he died a short time later. Neither of the drivers of the vehicles stopped to render aid, though one driver allegedly exited the automobile in order to remove the bicycle from the front of the car.

Police are still searching for the driver or drivers who hit the man and caused his death. The Texas family who has lost their loved one to this fatal bicycle accident are now struggling to come to terms with the callousness of their loved one's death. Once the parties responsible are located and the circumstances surrounding the victim's death are clarified, the surviving family are entitled to seek the guidance of an experienced attorney in order to discern whether a wrongful death suit would be feasible. Such cases, when successful, may enable the family to recover the financial damages that they likely incurred from the fatal collision and resulting monetary losses.
