 Oakland Hit-and-run Bicycle Accident East 15th Street and Eighth AvenueSuspect in Cadillac Escalade Hit Bicyclist, Fled Scene

OAKLAND, Calif. (April 8, 2022)  — A 38-year-old Oakland man riding a bicycle was critically injured Thursday afternoon in a hit-and-run crash at East 15th Street and Eighth Avenue in Oakland.

Now police searching for the driver of the white Cadillac Escalade SUV that struck him, according to East Bay Times.

The hit-and-run collision happened about 4:10 p.m. on Thursday, April 7th at the Oakland intersection.

The Oakland man on the bike was riding eastbound on East 15th Street. He was in a marked bicycle lane and had a green light when he arrived at the intersection with Eighth Avenue. That’s when a white Cadillac Escalade traveling southbound on Eighth Avenue allegedly drove through a red light, police said.

The impact caused the bicyclist to be thrown onto the pavement. He suffered major head and other injuries, police said.

Meanwhile, the SUV driver reversed his vehicle and drove away eastbound on East 15th Street, police said.

Investigators are working on the case and believe that speed was a factor in the collision.

Finally, there is a $5,000 in reward for information leading to the arrest of the SUV driver.

Witnesses may call police traffic investigators at 510-777-8570 or Crime Stoppers at 510-777-8572.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

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.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
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.

You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case.
