Bicyclist Found Dead After Crashing into Parking Area

On Friday, October 30th, a bicyclist in Santa Clara was found dead after a crash with two separate vehicles. California Highway Patrol was the first responder at the scene. The incident happened just before 12:30 p.m. on Rio Del Mar Boulevard. The bicyclist was later identified as a man, aged 48, whose name wasn’t disclosed by the authorities. He was speeding downhill without safety gear and crashed into two vehicles that were parked in Esplanade. The vehicles were a 2019 blue Toyota Avalon and a 1996 white Chevrolet 3500 pickup truck. Neither vehicle were occupied at the time of the crash. Authorities are still investigating whether alcohol or drug intoxication was a factor in the crash.

What Should You Do As A Bicyclist Involved in a Car Accident?

If you were riding your bicycle in town when you were suddenly involved in a car accident, you should first ensure your own safety. What if you were injured? If no one was in the vicinity of the accident scene, you need to contact emergency personnel or ask the driver to help you do so. Even if outwardly, nothing seems wrong, it is best to accept a ride to the hospital if the medical team on-site advises you to do so. Afterward, you can choose to pursue any legal action you feel is necessary to take.
