Long Beach, CA (September 30, 2019) – The man who was struck by two vehicles while riding a bicycle and ultimately succumbed to his injuries last Thursday, September 26th, has been identified by authorities. Mike Yanis, 59, lost his life in the accident which occurred at Redondo Avenue and 11th Street in Long Beach.
The incident took place at around 6:20 a.m. and authorities arrived at the scene to find Yanis lying in the roadway. A preliminary investigation showed that a woman was driving south on Redondo Avenue when she failed to see the Yanis and subsequently struck him. The victim was knocked into the northbound lane where he was hit by a second motorist.
Both drivers involved remained at the scene and cooperated with authorities. The investigation is currently ongoing.
We would like to offer our condolences to the family of Mike Yanis at this time.
Because of the tremendous vulnerability of the victim, bicycle accidents in California have a tendency to lead to catastrophic and even fatal injuries. In fact, California had more bicycle fatalities than any other state in 2012.
Tragically, serious and even fatal accidents can occur at any time, leaving victims and their loved ones with not only pain and suffering but extremely high expenses as well. While it may be difficult, it is important to understand that you may likely have significant rights at this time.
