A man was involved in a fatal bicycle hit-and-run incident in Ector County, Texas. According to law enforcement, the accident occurred at about 12 AM on West 16th Street and Polaris Avenue. The victim was hit by an unidentified car while riding his bicycle. The driver of the car fled the scene and an investigation is currently underway to find the perpetrator. The bicyclist died from the injuries he sustained in the incident. It is important to note that if one is driving a vehicle and strikes another vehicle, pedestrian, motorcyclist, or bicyclist, that fleeing the scene of the incident is a crime.
A woman was involved in a fatal vehicle accident in Houston, Texas. The accident occurred at about 11:30 AM on Antoine Drive, near Fallbrook. The driver of a pick-up truck ran a red light at the intersection on Fallbrook and collided with the woman, who died from her injuries. The pick-up truck had been reported as stolen and so this accident was a part of a police chase situation. There were three people in the truck who were also taken to the hospital.
We hope that the perpetrators of these crimes receive justice. Our condolences go to the families of the victims, who we imagine have been deeply affected by these incidents. We encourage families who have experienced similar instances to contact a personal injury attorney, who may be able to explain to them their rights and options. These cases may trigger wrongful death claims.
