A hit-and-run driver left a 53-year-old bicyclist seriously injured after an early Friday morning bicycle wreck.
    
The bicyclist was found just before 1 a.m.at the intersection of Magnolia Street and Chapman Avenue in Garden Grove. The bicyclist was riding north on Magnolia when he was hit by a vehicle heading east on Chapman. He was bleeding from the face and head. Fire personnel took the man to the hospital where he was treated for head injuries and a broken leg.
 
There were no witnesses.
 
Bicycle-car accidents often occur because the driver of the car does not see the bicyclist or the driver or because the driver underestimated the speed of the bike or overestimated the bicycles braking ability 
 
Drivers who are involved in any sort of accident that involves property damage must stop and identify themselves to others involved before leaving the scene. If a driver does not stop and someone is injured, he may be charged with felony hit-and-run.
 
If you have been seriously injured in an Orange County bicycle accident, seek a lawyer who specializes in Southern California bicycle injury cases. Call the bike accident attorneys at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis and Leslie to learn about your rights as a bicyclist.
