Florida bicycle accident attorney
Police have made an arrest in a fatal hit-and-run bicycle accident in Orange County that killed a man recently. Police say that the victim was riding his bike on Albatross Street around 10 p.m. one recent evening and was trying to cross Park Avenue when he was struck by a Toyota Yaris. The impact threw him onto the street, where he was run over by a 2003 Infiniti SUV driven by an Apopka woman. Police report that the SUV dragged the victim’s body “a substantial distance” and that the victim died immediately after being struck by the SUV. The accident shocked James O. Cunningham and other Orlando bicycle accident attorneys due to the woman’s callousness. After striking the victim and dragging his body an unknown distance, witnesses say she stopped but did not get out of her car despite being told by three witnesses that she had hit the bicyclist.
As Orlando personal injury attorney James O. Cunningham and other local residents know all too well, our area is the most dangerous metropolitan area in the country for pedestrians, especially Latinos, who make up the vast majority of victims. In an effort to make area roadways safer for everyone, Orlando officials recently launched a new campaign named Best Foot Forward.
