HUNTINGTON BEACH, California (Jan. 12, 12) – A 76-year-old bicyclist was struck by a brown SUV and seriously injured on Heil Avenue, west of Goldenwest Street, according to a Huntington Beach Police Department press release.
The bicyclist, a Huntington Beach resident, was transported to UCI Medical Center for treatment of his injuries. The 81-year-old driver of the 2006 Ford Explorer, also a resident of Huntington Beach, was not injured in the 11:40 a.m. crash, according to police.
Police are investigating the bicycle accident and are seeking the public’s help especially any witnesses that may have seen what happened.
There were 51,000 reported injuries to pedal cyclists and 618 were killed in 2010, according to statistics compiled by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.
“Bicycle riding is great exercise for people of all ages, but unfortunately it can be especially deadly on busy city streets,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, founder of the Seegmiller Law Firm. “Those who are injured in bicycle accidents should consider hiring an attorney if the driver who hit them was negligent.”
