LOCATION: St. Helena/Napa County

DATE OF COLLISION: Sunday, September 30th

October 1, 2018- According to Napa Valley Register, a major injury bicycle versus vehicle collision was reported yesterday on Highway 128 near Lake Hennessey.

Authorities report that the driver of a pickup truck ID’d as Odilon Martinezcastro, 33, struck a 58-year-old man of Yountville identified as Craig Vogel.

Martinezcastro apparently failed to see Vogel ahead of him for unknown reasons as Vogel rode within eastbound lanes of the highway.

Vogel suffered very serious injuries as a result of the collision as he was not helmeted, according to the article. He was rushed to Queen of the Valley Med Center and remains in critical condition.

Neither drugs nor alcohol is believed to have been factors as the investigation is currently ongoing being conducted by the California Highway Patrol.

*We offer our warmest of thoughts, our prayers, and condolences to the family members and friends of Mr. Craig Voge as he recovers from his injuries.

Napa County Bicycle Accident Attorney

Based on this news report, it appears that the driver of the involved vehicle will be held responsible for hitting the victim. Authorities will look into other factors, however, such as whether or not the driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Was the driver negligent in any other way? Was the bicyclist riding in a bike lane? Was the bicyclist riding in the middle of the road? We trust officials are looking into these and other factors in order to determine precisely what occurred here to help figure out liability.

In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor,  Craig Vogel will be entitled to personal injury lawsuit against the driver pending the results of the investigation. If the driver is found responsible, the injured victim may seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills and pain and suffering.
