On Sunday morning, a car accident involving a bicyclist left two people critically injured. At about 8:16 a.m. two vehicles collided near Pacific Coast Highway and Seapoint Avenue in Huntington Beach. Both vehicles rolled down an embankment and onto a trail, striking a bicyclist. Authorities are investigating the accident, explains an Orange County injury attorney.
Huntington Beach accounted for none of the 10 fatal and 157 of the 1,087 injury motor vehicle collisions involving bicyclists in 2008, the most recent year for which the California Highway Patrol has posted accident statistics. Statewide, there were a total of 131 fatal and 11,683 injury collisions involving bicyclists. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, most bicyclist-vehicle collisions can be attributed to just five causes.
All of us would like to wish the two people critically injured on Sunday morning a full recovery.
