Crash Cuts Cross-Country Fundraising Ride Short

Cochlear implants are surgically inserted hearing devices that help even the profoundly deaf to hear. But these wonder buds are not without their cost, and many deserving recipients need assistance to pay for the devices that will finally permit them to hear the world around them. One kind soul willing to help is Jacob Landis, who has ridden his bike 10,000 miles this year to raise money to pay for operations, visiting every major league baseball stadium in the nation as he traverses the United States.

Big rig hit-and-run

Landis’ charitable pedaling came to an abrupt halt when he was struck on his bicycle just four miles from his destination in Miami, FL. Apparently, a semitruck hit the young cyclist and baseball enthusiast before speeding off and leaving the scene of the accident. Landis’ injuries included a broken nose, fractured cheek bone and a concussion.

Bicyclists on the roadways

While bicyclist deaths and injuries have declined considerably, there are still close to 40,000 injuries each year. With bicyclist deaths and injuries costing more than $4 billion per year, the nation still has a long way to go to improve safety. Motor vehicle drivers can help by taking the following steps:

  • Follow traffic rules about yielding and turning
  • Never turn across a bicyclist’s path

Bicycle fatalities may only represent a little over two percent of the total traffic fatalities in the nation, but many could be avoided by following those two simple guidelines in the previous paragraph.

When motor vehicles and bicycles collide, the time has come to call a knowledgeable personal injury attorney.
