Oakland, California (October 4, 2019) – A bicyclist died after being hit by a car in Oakland on Thursday evening.
According to a local news source, the fatal collision occurred on Fruitvale Avenue at about 6:50 p.m. October 3.
The authorities said a 24-year-old Oakland man was riding a bicycle on the roadway when he crashed into the open door of a parked Toyota Avalon.
The impact of the collision threw the bicyclist into the traffic lanes where he was hit by a passing 2015 Dodge Ram pickup.
The unidentified man was killed in the collision.
Both motorists remained at the scene and cooperated with the authorities.
No further information was provided.
An investigation to determine the cause of the accident is ongoing.
Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner of Alpine Law Group, urges accident victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by the tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.
While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in the accident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. While this results in atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice, in this case, helps bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
