California bicyclist dies after being hit by truck

Although any type of auto accident can be tragic, there can be an even higher risk of serious injuries and death when a bicyclist is involved. Sadly, these incidents continue to occur in San Francisco and around the country, so drivers should be especially aware of everyone they share the roads with, from other drivers to bicyclists and pedestrians. When a bike accident takes place, it can be too late to prevent another life from being lost, so drivers should keep an eye out for bikers at all times.

While she was riding her bicycle in Oakland, a 62-year-old El Cerrito woman lost her life after being hit by a semi truck. The woman was struck by a 64-year-old man from Galt. Known for her accomplishments in science, the bicyclist had just got off a ferry and was on her way home. She died at the location of the crash, around Market and Fifth streets.

After providing authorities with a statement, the truck driver was permitted to leave. Those who knew the woman were impacted by her death and had many positive things to say regarding her personality and professional accomplishments.

Bicyclists sometimes face a number of obstacles on the roads, such as drunk drivers and hectic intersections. However, if they are hit by a vehicle, the difficulties they face can be overwhelming, even if they are able to survive the incident. On top of broken bones and medical expenses, the physical injuries can prevent them from being able to work and manage their responsibilities. Anyone who is going through this could benefit from speaking to an attorney.

Client Reviews

    I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos on a business litigation matter involving a frivolous lawsuit filed in federal court. Ilya guided me through the case and helped make sure that I understood the process… He always took the time to answer all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him and this firm!


    I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally.


    Chantel Fitting is as good as it gets. If you have been injured, need help and cant get what you know you deserve from one of the big insurance companies, then you have got to call Chantel. She will fight for you like it was her that was hurt… She cares. Call her. You wont be sorry you did.

    I was fortunate enough to have been represented and retained by this law firm for my injuries sustained by an under insured motorist. I must say Chantel Fitting and Illya Frangos went above and beyond trying to resolve my case… I would highly recommend this law firm and stop shopping around if you are looking for the best, as this is as good as it gets.
