Yuba City Bicycle Crash Ends Tragically
A car crash in Yuba City claimed the life of one bicyclist on August 13, 2018.
According to Action News Now, this crash happened on South Township Road late at night. Allegedly, a driver hit a male cyclist from behind, which caused the man to fall off of his bicycle and crash onto the road.
We were deeply saddened to learn that when first-responders arrived on the scene, the cyclist was dead from his injuries. The young driver involved in this crash remained on the scene and is now working with police.
Rear End Bicycle Crashes
Unfortunately, after a rear-end crash, we hear far too often that drivers “didn’t see” the cyclist. A rear-end bicycle crash is one of the most dangerous collisions a cyclist can be involved in as they’re often thrown over the handlebars and seriously injured or even killed.
