Bicyclist Hit By Garden Grove Police Vehicle on Halloween Sustained Serious Injuries – Sent to Local Hospital
Garden Grove Police Vehicle Accidentally Strikes Bicyclist on Halloween – A Garden Grove Police vehicle accidentally struck a person riding a bicycle on Halloween at approximately 7:30 p.m. The bicyclist was hit by the police car at the intersection of Garden Grove Boulevard and Harbor Boulevard in the City of Garden Grove, California. The car vs. bike traffic collision left the rider with serious injuries, and he was transported by paramedics to the local hospital.
The Garden Grove Fire Department rushed to the scene of the serious traffic accident. They found the bicyclist on the ground near the corner of the intersection. The bicycle tire had dislodged from the bike and was laying in the middle of the roadway.
The California Highway Patrol in Orange County was immediately assigned to conduct the traffic accident investigation. Whenever a police officer is involved in a traffic collision, a different agency must be assigned to handle the case. Details of this Garden Grove bicycle accident are being withheld. The name and current physical condition of the bicyclist have not yet been released.
“Statistics show that about two thirds of all bicycle accidents occur at an intersection. And, most accidents occur in urban neighborhoods, simply because that is where most people ride bikes,” said accident injury attorney Alexander Napolin of The Napolin Law Firm, an Orange County bicycle accident law firm. “A bicycle vs. car collision is almost always the fault of the driver, and usually results in traumatic injuries, including head trauma,” said Napolin. “Round-abouts and T-intersections are the highest areas of incident.”
