Fatal Ramona Bicycle Accident | San Diego Bike Injury Lawyer Attorney

By Ross Jurewitz on September 15, 2010

An unidentified 54-year-old bicyclist was struck and killed by a suspected drunk driver who later crashed his car into a parked car hurting three more people in Ramona on September 11‚ 2010 around 8:50 p.m.

According to the California Highway Patrol‚ the bicyclist was crossing Main Street near Kalbaugh Street when he was struck by a SUV and thrown on the road.  The SUV swerved and struck a stop sign‚ went over an embankment‚ and hit a parked vehicle pushing it into a nearby liquor store.

Two people in the parked car complained of pain and one person suffered serious cuts by  flying glass. California Highway Patrol officers took the SUV driver to Palomar Hospital and later arrested him for suspected driving under the influence causing serious bodily injury.

This is an unfortunate‚ and completely inexcusable‚ incident in which‚ due to the negligent driving of an intoxicated driver‚ one bicyclist lost his life and several other people suffered injuries.   The SUV driver will probably be found to have violated California Vehicle Code Section 23152(a) which states that “It is unlawful for any person who is under the influence of any alcoholic beverage or drug‚ or under the combined influence of any alcoholic beverage and drug‚ to drive a vehicle.”  The bicyclist’s family‚ as well as the injured passengers in the car‚ should consult an aggressive San Diego personal injury attorney who could help them get a fair compensation for the irreparable loss.

We offer our deepest condolences to the bicyclist’s family for the tragic loss of their loved one and sincerely hope that the injured victims recover to their complete health soon.
