Student hurt in Cedar Falls bike accident
A female student on a bike was recently injured through her involvement in an accident with a vehicle, an article published by kwwl.com reported on September 21.
According to reports, the accident involving a bicycle and a vehicle on September 20 took place at the 18th Street and Hudson intersection. The bicyclist identified as a UNI student was on her way to the campus when she was struck by a vehicle driven by an 89-year-old woman. Reports revealed that the collision happened after the elderly woman proceeded in making a right turn despite a red traffic signal. The student, who is now afraid to ride her bike, was lucky to only have sustained minor injuries after hitting the vehicle’s hood. Authorities issued a ticket to the vehicle driver for her failure to give right of way.
Though the student escaped serious injuries, the Iowa attorneys at the LaMarca Law Group, P.C., understand that many individuals suffer incapacitating injuries after being involved in bike accidents.
