Portola Valley Bicycle Accident Caused By "Unsafe Turn"



The Palo Alto Daily News reports that last month's fatal bicycle crash between a 47-year-old bicycle and a 26-wheel truck was caused by an "unsafe turn" the bicyclist made. The collision occurred as the woman was headed down Alpine Road next to the big rig.

For unknown reasons, the woman turned her bicycle and fell to her right side. The truck's tires struck the woman, killing her instantly. The truck driver - Gabriel Manzur Vera - was moving from the right westbound lane to turn right onto the interstate. He had his right blinker on and was looking in his review mirror. After looking forward, Vera felt a bump. Although the report concludes the specific cause for the accident was the turn, the "legal cause" was not revealed. Legal cause includes any action - no matter how small - that contributes to injury or damage.

Trucking and big rig accidents are often the most serious California motor vehicle accidents. Truck drivers have a responsibility to drive safely and with care. Those that share the road with big rigs should also keep several safety tips in mind - chief among these is understanding that trucks need room to maneuver and that drivers have enormous "blind spots," especially on the right side.

This accident is a tragedy for all involved. As a California truck accident attorney and bicycle enthusiast, I hope this incident raises awareness of the need for safety and for all California motorists to "share the road."
