Tustin: Police Searching For Driver Of Ford Mustang Who Critically Injured Bicyclist
James E. Ballidis
Police are searching for the driver of a 2010 Ford Mustang who critically injured a bicyclist in Tustin last night. Shortly before 7:30 p.m., the Mustang struck the 23-year-old as he was riding through the intersection of Walnut Avenue and Browning Avenue, the impact causing serious head trauma. He was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. According to witness accounts, the vehicle’s license plate number is No. 6LLX505, explains an Orange County injury lawyer. Anyone who encounters the vehicle is asked to call 911.
Unfortunately, bicycle riders have a high risk of sustaining serious or fatal injuries in an accident, as they often have only a helmet protecting them from the vehicles with which they share the road. Throughout Orange County, 10 cyclists were killed and 1,087 injured in traffic collisions, with none of the fatalities and 22 of the injuries suffered in Tustin, according to the California Highway Patrol’s 2008 Annual Report of Fatal and Injury Motor Vehicle Traffic Collisions.
Everyone at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish the bicyclist critically injured last night in Tustin a full recovery. We hope that the police searching for the driver of the Ford Mustang are successful.
The Orange County Register reported this hit-and-run accident.
