CA accident lawyerThere is an abundance of cycling groups in San Jose and the surrounding Bay area, as well as numerous events that draw cyclists from other places. Unfortunately, despite road improvements, additional bike lanes, and aggressive public awareness campaigns, motor vehicle accidents involving cyclists are increasingly common. In light of a recent fatal cycling accident, we want you to be aware of the problem and your rights if this type of accident occurs.

Fatal Cycling Accident in San Jose

We recently reported on the large number of children injured in bike accidents throughout the Bay Area and provided details on ways parents could help keep young riders safe. Adult cyclists are also at risk and need to be aware of the potential dangers as well. Even experienced cyclists can find themselves caught up in collisions involving motor vehicles. When these accidents do occur, the injuries you suffer can be severe.

A recent cycling accident in San Jose is a prime example. The crash left one cyclist dead and the other with potentially life-threatening injuries. The collision occurred July 15, 2019, near Vista Park Drive and Capitol Expressway. Police report that the accident involved an SUV, which struck two men while they were riding their bikes. One was pronounced dead by emergency responders while the other was transported to a local hospital. The SUV driver remained at the scene and was cooperating with the investigation. At this time, there is nothing to indicate alcohol or drugs were involved in the crash.
