Car and bicyclist collide in Reno, cyclist killed

A recent early evening collision caused a Reno-area bicyclist to suffer serious injuries when his bicycle was involved in an accident with a car. The incident occurred shortly after 5 o'clock in the evening and happened near Airway and Garden Homes drives. The victim, a 30-year-old man, was taken to an area hospital where he died from the significant harm he sustained in the crash.

Although the driver of the vehicle that was involved in the fatal accident stayed on scene when police arrived, law enforcement officials are continuing to investigate this matter to determine how and why it occurred. They do not believe that the driver of the involved car was impaired at the time of the crash, though this does not necessarily mean that the driver will be able to avoid liability for his role in the deadly incident.

When an accident of this nature occurs, it is not uncommon for law enforcement personnel to evaluate the evidence they collect from the crash, and in some cases, to make a recreation of the incident to determine its cause. As they work through the facts of the case the data they encounter may reveal that the driver of the involved car exhibited negligence in his driving conduct and was responsible for the fatal collision.

Motorists who operate on Nevada streets and highways owe a duty of care to all of the other motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians and others with whom they share the roads. When they breach their duty to others through negligence or recklessness, their conduct may make them liable for the losses others experience. As investigators sort out the facts of this story, their findings may reveal instances of negligence and possible civil claims for the family members of the deceased victim.
