Fountain Valley: Car Accident Left Cyclist Seriously Injured
Posted on Jan 12, 2012
Shortly before 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 11th, a car accident left a cyclist seriously injured in Fountain Valley. At the intersection of Bushard Street and Talbert Avenue two sport utility vehicles collided, the impact sending one of them into a 29-year-old man on a bicycle who was waiting for the traffic signal to change. He suffered major trauma and was transported to a local hospital. Authorities are investigating the crash; however, they do not believe alcohol or drugs were a factor, explains an auto accident attorney in Orange County. Witnesses are asked to contact the Fountain Valley Police Department’s traffic bureau at 714-796-7939.
Fountain Valley accounted for none of the 12 fatalities and 42 of the 1,201 injuries suffered by cyclists in traffic accidents in Orange County in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. The California Office of Traffic Safety compares the accident statistics of cities with similar populations.
