Young Massachusetts boy killed in bicycle accident

A bicycle accident can be a hard time for the victim as well as the family. When the accident results in the death of a young boy, the results can be overwhelming. A recent Massachusetts bicycle accident has claimed the life of a 13-year-old boy.

According to reports, the young boy was on his bicycle attempting to cross the street when he was hit. He was transported to a local medical facility where sadly he was pronounced dead. No information regarding his injuries or the exact cause of death was given. The driver of the vehicle, who was only described as a woman, was also transported to a nearby hospital. It was not known if she sustained any injuries.

A woman who described the damage said the car had front end damage as well as a broken windshield. She also noted that a side mirror had been broken and was hanging off of the vehicle. An accident such as this could take time to thoroughly investigate and determine if charges will be placed. The District Attorney's Office is involved in the investigation. During this time, the boy's family may want to look into the possibility of filing a civil suit against the driver.

Any Massachusetts resident that has lost a loved one due to a bicycle accident could benefit from knowing the applicable state laws. Even in situations where criminal charges are filed, a civil suit could still be appropriate depending on the situation. Having an understanding of one's rights can help them determine the best action to take.
