Santa Ana, CA (October 17, 2019) – A bicyclist suffered a major injury following a hit-and-run collision that took place at the intersection of Main Street and Warner Avenue in Santa Ana. The incident was stated to have happened at around 5:20 a.m. on Wednesday morning, October 16th.
According to police in Santa Ana, the victim, who has been identified as Virgilio Lemus Garcia, was riding a bicycle in the area when he was struck by a blue Honda. The driver of the Honda fled the scene immediately after the accident.
Emergency responders were dispatched to the crash site where they transported Garcia to a local hospital to be treated for a serious head injury. His current condition is unknown.
Police are actively searching for the Honda involved in the collision as part of their investigation into this incident.
Our thoughts are with Virgilio Lemus Garcia and his family at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
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.
