Wisconsin bicyclist dies after driver crashes into him head-on

The promise of the upcoming fall weather in Wisconsin is appealing to many of the state’s bicyclists. There is nothing quite like going for a ride on a bike to enjoy the beautiful fall foliage Wisconsin has to offer. During this time, it is especially important for motorists to be aware of bicyclists and realize that they have just as much right to use the roads as automobile drivers do. Sharing the road responsibly can ensure that everyone is safe and that pedestrian accidents are minimized.

A bicyclist was killed recently by a motorist that likely did not take the time to see the cyclist coming. The car was attempting to pass another vehicle just before 6:00 p.m. on County Highway W in Outagamie County when it ran headlong into the bicyclist who was traveling in the opposite direction. The 48-year-old bicyclist, who was from the Hobart area, died on the scene before he could be transported to the hospital.

Authorities are looking into the details of the accident and are still investigating. They have not indicated if charges will be filed or if the driver, who was uninjured in the accident, will be cited.

Because of the careless actions of the driver, this bicyclist lost his life. His family would be well advised to seek out the help of a personal injury attorney in order to ensure that they receive the proper compensation for their loved one’s pain and suffering and death. Though it will not make up for the loss of their loved one, it may help ease the financial burden.
