Bicycles are a great way to combine travel and exercise. Bicycles are light-weight, efficient, and most importantly, fun to ride. Many people grow up riding bikes; you start off at a young age with training wheels until eventually you’re on a 10-speed cruiser on your way to work. The main downside to a bicycle is that they offer virtually no protection to the rider. Even if you take all the necessary safety precautions, there always is a risk of being hit. Victims of bicycle accidents should rely on an experienced personal injury attorney here at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates to help guide them through this complicated litigation process.
Detectives from the Collision Reconstruction Unit of the Montgomery County, Maryland Police Department have been investigating a fatal bicycle collision that occurred recently on Veirs Mill Road at the Turkey Branch Parkway in Aspen Hill, Maryland. Officers say they first responded to Veirs Mill Road at the Turkey Branch Parkway because there was a report of a collision. An initial investigation has indicated that the bicyclist was attempting to cross the street in a northerly direction in the area of the marked crosswalk. A 2003 Honda Accord, traveling eastbound on Veirs Mill Road, then hit the bicyclist.
The bicyclist was transported to the hospital where he later died from his injuries. The bicyclist is identified as 31-year old Oscar Mauricio Gutierrez Osorio, of Silver Spring, Maryland. The driver of the Honda was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. This bicycle collision remains under investigation.
