BAKERSFIELD (July 23, 2017) – A bicyclist was critically injured after a traffic collision in the area of Columbus and Berkeley streets Friday morning, according to 23 ABC News.

The accident was reported at around 9 p.m.

As per the article, officers responded to the scene and found an adult man with injuries described as major. The victim was believed to be a bicycle rider who was struck by a car near or at the intersection.

The bicyclist was taken to a local hospital where he was listed in critical condition. His name was not immediately disclosed.

Meanwhile, the report did not include if the driver involved was hurt or stopped following the crash. Authorities are still gathering more information and evidence to determine liability.


Our thoughts and prayers remain with the man who has suffered severe injuries in this incident. We wish the victim a swift and full recovery.


Bicycle accidents which also involve automobiles, more often than not, result in serious injuries. Both the cyclists and the drivers are then obligated to adhere to the safety precautions and rules on the road to avoid any type of traffic incident.

In this particular circumstance, there are factors that need to be examined thoroughly to determine the cause of the collision. Was the driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Was there any recklessness or negligence on either of the two parties?

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true.

Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
