Every six hours, a bicyclist is struck and fatally injured by a motor vehicle driver. This is primarily due to a vehicle running a red light, failing to yield, or simply because the driver didn’t see the bicyclist. For the case above, the lack of light may have caused the vehicle to hit the boy, leaving the child wrongfully killed.
