Investigators are looking to determine if the driver who struck the bicyclist was operating their vehicle negligently at the time of the crash. Authorities will be investigating various possible factors such as right-of-way, excessive speed, distracted driving, and the presence of drugs and/or alcohol. If the investigation shows that the driver of the truck acted negligently, there may very well be cause for a personal injury lawsuit.
