Tulare County Wrongful Death Lawyer John Rozier has the following accident update; On Saturday, December 5, 2015, a bicycle rider was killed in a vehicle collision. The pickup truck crash occurred in Porterville, at about 5:38 PM.
A 59 year old man was riding his bike when he was hit by a 2002 Toyota Tacoma, in the 200 block of East Olive Avenue. The truck had been driving eastbound on Olive Ave. when it struck the bicyclist.
The biker suffered severe injuries and was taken to a local hospital. He was pronounced dead a short time later.
The accident is now under investigation.
The Law Firm of Nelson and Rozier is currently handling a similar case arising from August 23, 2013, when a fresno police car ran over a man on a bicycle named Angel Toscano.
In that case we were able to download the event data recorder from the police cruiser to determine pre-accident speed and acceleration of the car.
