Bicycle Accidents in California

According to reports, a majority of bicyclists who were fatally struck by vehicles were found to be males over the age of 40. Irrespective of gender and age, however, bicycle accidents in California are commonly prone to ending with deadly injuries due to the defenselessness of the victim, as well as the actions of negligent motorists.
