Police and fire authorities immediately responded to an emergency call at around 5:15 in the afternoon from 4500 block of Myer Road, Cottage Grove, Wisconsin last May 9.
Initial reports revealed that the young man was trying a new trick maneuver on his bike. Apparently, when the bike went off the air, the teen lost control of his bike then struck a tree, according to the authorities.
Although the teenager was wearing helmet and safety gears and the authorities tried to revive him as well, all efforts proved futile. The young man died at an early age.
Authorities already notified the school officials in the Monona Grove School District where the teen attended school. Also, they will have an additional grief counselor available to help other students deal with their school mate’s death.
Like in Cottage Grove, biking is very common everywhere in the city of Los Angeles. In fact it is the most common form of exercise in California. Unfortunately, bikes also contribute a lot to the growing number of fatal accidents across the country; that is why biking can be a not-so-good idea, since bike accidents occur every now and then.
If you happen to be involved in a bicycle accident and sustained personal injuries due to other people’s negligence or recklessness, you have the legal rights to file for a personal injury claim against the liable party.
If the accident occurred in Los Angeles, you may seek legal assistance from a Los Angeles bicycle accident attorney to have your case evaluated and make you understand your legal rights, as well as to help you achieve success in your claim.
