Bicycle Accidents in California

Most bicycle riders who were hit and killed by vehicles were determined to be adult males over the age of 40, according to investigators. Nevertheless, bicycle accidents in California are particularly prone to ending with devastating or fatal injuries irrespective of the gender and age of the victim. Additionally, major injuries are a common outcome as well, especially when a collision is caused by an intoxicated or severely negligent driver.
