Today’s streets are not made for the urban cyclist. They are dangerous and put cyclists in the position to get hurt in serious bicycle accidents.
TMZ reports that Shawn Pyfrom, star of television’s “Desperate Housewives”, crashed into a senior biker with his vehicle in a particularly bad car accident in Los Angeles, California. Currently, the severity of the biker’s personal injuries are unknown.
Our firm’s San Diego car accident lawyers feel that you cannot ride a bike on today’s streets without putting yourself in a position to receive a catastrophic injury or lose your life in a wrongful death accident. This is not the good ol’ days where you could ride your bike in the middle of the street — now it means life or death.
While driving around the San Fernando Valley, Pyfrom crashed into the elderly biker, who was going the wrong way and turned into the path of Pyfrom’s vehicle all of a sudden. When the actor got out of the car to help, he saw that the biker was on the ground and covered in blood.
Pyfrom attempted to administered help to the biker until the paramedics transported him to a nearby hospital for medical treatment. At the moment, neither Pyfrom, nor the biker have been cited for being at fault for the accident.
