Shortly before 6:30 p.m. yesterday, a bicyclist was killed and two other people injured in a rollover accident involving an SUV in San Diego. The SUV careened off of state Route 56 in Rancho Penasquitos, tumbling down an embankment before landing on the bike path on which two cyclists were riding. One of the cyclists died at the scene, and the other was taken to a nearby hospital, as was the driver of the SUV, explains a California personal injury lawyer.
When collecting accident statistics, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration classifies bicyclists and other cyclists, including the riders of two-wheel nonmotorized vehicles, tricycles, and unicycles powered solely by pedals, as pedalcyclists. In 2009, NHTSA recorded 630 traffic-related pedalcyclist fatalities and 51,000 injuries. That year, 99 bicyclists were killed in traffic accidents in California, a 9.2 percent decrease from 2008.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of the bicyclist killed in the rollover accident involving the SUV. We would also like to wish a full recovery to the two people who were injured.
