Redding, CA – 65-Year-Old Man Killed in Fatal Bicycle Accident

Redding, CA (January 14, 2019) On the afternoon of January 13th, a fatal bicycle accident happened along Highway 273 at approximately 1:18 p.m. According to the reports, a 2002 For Expedition struck a 65-year-old man riding his bicycle for unknown reasons.

When emergency crews arrived to tend to the man, he had already died at the scene. His identity has not been released yet.

The 56-year-old driver responsible remained at the scene and cooperated with authorities as they gathered information.

We are deeply saddened to know that a man lost his life in this accident. Our thoughts are with his family during this heartbreaking time.

Bicycle Accidents in California

Almost 1,000 bicyclists lose their lives every year in California, with the leading cause being distracted driving. Because bicycles are smaller and not as loud as other vehicles, most drivers aren’t aware of them on the road, especially if the driver is distracted by something else. All bicyclists deserve the same respect as other vehicles since they abide by the same traffic laws. Unfortunately, drivers still choose to partake in other activities instead of fully focusing on the road, which puts bicyclists at risk.

Once the police get to the bottom of why the woman struck the bicyclist, his family may qualify to file a wrongful death lawsuit with the help of a California personal injury lawyer.
