In crowded Nevada cities these days, walking and biking are great sources of transportation. By walking and biking, commuters can save money and avoid congested roadways. This means of traveling is not only economical, but also healthy and a great way to stay in shape. Running and biking have become popular forms of recreation as healthier lifestyle choices have become a trend in recent years. Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents are on the rise, so exercising along crowded roadways these days can be very dangerous.
A fatal accident involving bicyclists in Henderson is an example of the dangers that abound along city streets. The accident occurred on a recent Saturday morning near the popular Inspirada community in Henderson. Three cyclists were out for an early morning ride over the weekend when they were clipped by the driver of a Ford Escape.
The collision resulted in injuries to all three cyclists. Two of the cyclists were transported to a local hospital for treatment. Tragically, the third rider was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Escape remained on the scene and cooperated with authorities.
Tragically, accidents like this are more likely to be fatal since cyclists and pedestrians are exposed to the elements. Populations are increasing across the state of Nevada. Coincidentally, accidents involving pedestrians are also on the rise. Those in Nevada affected by auto-pedestrian accidents could greatly benefit by seeking the services of a knowledgeable attorney. A successfully litigated lawsuit could provide victims and families with much-needed compensation to offset medical bills and end-of-life expenses.
