Warner Robins Bicycle Accident Attorney helps Riders

A number of bicycle accidents happen when a cyclist is attempting to cross the road. When crossing a busy street it is always safest to use a crosswalk where traffic is controlled by a stop light. These intersections still present risks for cyclists if other safety precautions are not taken when attempting to cross a street.

Willie Frank Jackson, a 48 year old from Warner Robins, Georgia, was struck by a car when crossing at an intersection. The investigation revealed that the driver was traveling through a green light when she struck Jackson. Jackson was transported to Houston Medical Center with cuts and bruises and thankfully no serious, life threatening injuries.

We must use extreme caution when sharing the roadways with cars. It is really important to pay very close attention to your surroundings and always double check for cars before crossing the road. Taking a risk and cutting it close when a car is coming is not worth the potential outcome of an accident. If you are at an intersection with a crosswalk and signals you should wait for the walk signal to cross. You can never take too many precautions when sharing the road.
