A glance at the dangers of cycling in national statistics

People who enjoy cycling in California know that safety is a serious concern when sharing the roads with cars, pedestrians and other vehicles. The statistics show that cycling is inherently dangerous and carries with it a danger of fatality far greater than any other means of transportation. While bike trips account for only about 1% of all trips taken in the U.S., bicycle accident fatalities account for 2% of all traffic fatalities. So the dangers of cycling are very real and these figures illustrate the reasons why safety must come first when cycling.

Cyclist run over by armored car

People in San Diego may have heard about a gruesome accident that occurred at a La Mesa intersection last month. Police say a man on a bicycle was hit and run over by an armored car in the middle of a busy intersection. The victim was rushed to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries, where he remained in critical condition.

Cyclist killed by massive truck at San Marcos intersection

People in San Diego may have heard about yet another tragic bike crash fatality. The most recent such accident occurred earlier this month in San Marcos on a Thursday morning, when a cement truck plowed over a 22-year-old cyclist at the busy intersection of S. Las Posas Road and Grand Avenue.

Bus driver with fatal driving record kills 2 senior citizens

People who have been reading this blog know that there has been a frighteningly large number of bus crashes in California and across the U.S. so far in 2013. The most recent bus-related tragedy occurred in North Texas earlier this month, when a bus carrying 40 senior citizens from an Oklahoma casino abruptly and unexpectedly swerved off of the highway, into a median, and tipped over on its side. In total, 16 passengers were seriously injured and two passengers were killed.

Horrific bus crash kills 8, injures dozens

Last month a tour bus crash near Redlands, California, killed eight passengers and injured many more when the brakes apparently gave out, sending the bus hurdling down Highway 38 without any means of slowing down. The bus hit two other cars before flipping over, tossing the 38 passengers aboard the bus like rag dolls.

Child in stroller hit by SUV in critical condition

Earlier this month a San Diego woman ran over two pedestrians in a tragic traffic accident. The victims, a nanny pushing a stroller containing a 14-month-old child, were struck by the woman's SUV as they crossed the street. The nanny, a 41-year-old mother with two teenagers of her own, was killed, and the child remains in intensive care with extensive injuries.

Adverse weather causes serious traffic accidents

People in San Diego relish the warm, moderate climate, where sunny skies and comfortable temperatures are the norm. But when bad weather hits, people on the roads and highways in Southern California may lack the experience to stay safe on the roads. This was proven again on a weekend in January when spectators and commuters flocked to the PGA event at Torrey Pines, only to be waylaid by massive traffic jams caused by the bad weather and, unfortunately, an inordinate number of car accidents.

Repairman killed when driver slams into broken-down bus

Earlier this month, a 32-year-old mechanic was killed as he tried to fix an immobile school bus along the shoulder of Interstate 805 under the El Cajon Boulevard overpass. The car accident occurred when a woman driving a Nissan Altima sedan lost control of her vehicle in the wet and rainy conditions and slammed into the San Diego Unified School District bus he was repairing.

Man who killed passenger in police chase pleads not guilty

A 21-year-old man recently led police on a high-speed interstate chase that began in Oceanside and ended in death and destruction. The man slammed his Honda Civic into another parked car as he tried to flee, seriously injuring himself and killing his passenger, another 21-year-old male.
