Massachusetts bicycle accident leaves 1 man with serious injuries

An accident in late September left one man lying in the road unconscious, injured but breathing. Several 911 calls reported the bicycle accident around 4:15 p.m. Witnesses said the man was injured in a crash and was lying unresponsive after being struck by a Cadillac sedan while riding a bicycle. Police quickly blocked off the busy Massachusetts road in several directions as reconstruction agents investigated the scene.

The man was transported to a Burlington trauma center approximately 30 minutes after the calls to 911 came in. He reportedly sustained serious injuries during the accident. He was traveling alone and with the flow of traffic when the accident occurred.

A woman was arrested at the scene for causing the serious accident. She was accused of operating under the influence and for causing severe bodily injury while speeding. She was reportedly under the influence of prescription medications that had been prescribed to her. The crime scene investigation will likely be able to determine the full details and determine the specific cause or causes of the crash.

Being injured in a bicycle accident by the driver of a motor vehicle is understandably frightening. Clearly, it is hoped that this man is fortunate enough to survive this ordeal and recover from his injuries. Massachusetts law provides for those seriously injured due to the negligence of another party to pursue monetary claims for damages suffered as a result. Accidents victims often find it helpful to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney as they work to collect the compensation they are entitled to.
