Bicycle Accidents in California  Temecula, CA - Bicyclist Killed in Highway 74 Crash

It is common to see bicyclists out in California. With a good climate and varied terrain, riding a bicycle is a desirable form of exercise and also a fun hobby for many people in our state. However, bicyclists also face many risks when they share the road with trucks, motorcycles, and passenger vehicles. While not as common as other types of collisions, bicycle accidents do regularly occur in California and they often lead to serious or fatal injuries.

In 2021, 125 people were killed in bicycle accidents that took place across our state and hundreds more were injured. A careful investigation must be conducted into the cause of the crash. Many incidents involving bicycles occur because of:

  • Speeding drivers
  • Distracted driving
  • Drug or alcohol impairment
  • Poor weather or visibility conditions
  • Failure to yield the right of way at intersections

If you or a family member have been impacted by a bicycle crash, you may have legal rights. Bicyclists are treated the same as any other motorist when they are involved in a crash with a vehicle.
