Bicyclist struck by car, declared dead at scene

Wisconsin law enforcement officials are investigating an automobile related accident that left a bicycle rider dead in Outagamie County on Aug. 24. The local sheriff's department stated that a car collided with a bicycle at the intersection of County Y and County VV at about 5:50 p.m. in Seymour Township. Only the driver of the car and the bicyclist were involved in the accident. No information was provided regarding the prevailing weather conditions at the time that the accident occurred.

The sheriff's department further reported that the bicyclist was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. No other injuries associated with the accident were reported. The identity of the bicycle rider had not been released at the time of the report.

The sheriff's department is conducting a complete investigation of the circumstances surrounding the accident. As of Aug. 25, law enforcement authorities had not confirmed or denied that the driver of the car received a citation of any type. In addition, the sheriff's department would not confirm whether or not the driver was taken into custody.

A Wisconsin personal injury attorney may provide assistance to the family of a person killed in a car accident by pursuing a wrongful death claim against an insurance company. If a settlement with an insurance company proves impossible, the attorney may file a wrongful death lawsuit. If a person is injured, but not killed, as the result of a car accident, the attorney may also assist in filing a claim and in pursuing compensation for the damages and injuries sustained as the result of the negligence of another driver.
