Stanton, CA (February 17, 2020) – A woman was struck and injured by a vehicle while riding a bicycle in the vicinity of Pacific Street and Magnolia Avenue in Stanton. The collision was reported early on Monday morning, February 17th, at around 1:17 a.m., according to authorities.
Police stated that the victim was riding a bicycle and pulling a cart when she was hit by an unspecified vehicle that fled the scene. Medical responders were among those who were dispatched to the area. The victim was transported to a nearby hospital.
Authorities stated that the victim, identified only as a woman approximately 50-years-old, suffered a serious but non-life-threatening leg injury. Police are searching for the driver involved as part of the investigation into this incident.
Our thoughts are with the victim and her family at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
A majority of bicyclists who were struck and killed by automobiles were found to be men over the age of 40-years-old, according to active researchers. However, irrespective of either gender or age, bicycle accidents in California are prone to ending with catastrophic and often deadly injuries at least partly because of the defenselessness of the victim. Severe accidents can take place at nearly any time and leave victims, as well as their families with immense suffering alongside terribly high and unjust expenses.
