A cyclist was killed in a crash with an SUV in Lyons, according to the Boulder Daily Camera. The cyclist was a 47-year-old man whose name was withheld because his family had not been notified of the accident. The driver of the SUV is a 69-year-old man who was apparently driving in the 4wrong lane of Main Street in Lyons at the time of the crash. He is facing charges of vehicular homicide, careless driving resulting in death, and driving under the influence. He has a previous DUI charge, although it was nearly 40 years ago, in 1975. The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the cause of the accident. The SUV driver may have been turning, but is believed to have been traveling westbound in the eastbound lane of Main Street.

Have you or a loved one been seriously injured in a cycling accident? Speak with an experienced Fort Collins bicycle accident attorney today to discuss your options.

Each year, several hundred cyclists are killed in traffic accidents, with many more injured, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. While this number is not huge in comparison to the total number of car accidents across the country, it is certainly devastating to the families of those who are dead. And for those cyclists who survive the crashes, the injuries sustained are often catastrophic. With none of the protections inherent to a car or truck and very little in the way of safety devices, cyclists are susceptible to extremely serious injuries such as traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury; these injuries may result in the need for a lifetime of expensive medical care.
