Bicyclist Killed In Kingston Car Accident on Pine Grove Avenue

KINGSTON, NEW YORK (December 29, 2022) – A female bicyclist has tragically died in a Kingston car accident along Pine Grove Avenue, according to the New York State Police.

Hudson Valley police officials are saying that the collision took place on Tuesday. A 65-year-old woman was riding a bicycle when she was hit by a vehicle.

Firefighters and paramedics were called to the scene of the collision in order to help the woman. She was taken to Health Alliance of the Hudson Valley, Mary’s Avenue campus.

Sadly, she later died due to the severe nature of her injuries.

Liability For Kingston Bicycle Accidents

Thousands of bicyclists are killed or seriously injured every year in the United States. According to the CDC, “Bicycle trips make up only 1% of all trips in the United States. However, bicyclists account for over 2% of people who die in a crash involving a motor vehicle on our nation’s roads.” There are a number of steps that should be taken after any bicycle accident.

  • Eye witnesses should be interviewed.
  • Medical records should be preserved.
  • Surveillance footage should be sought.
  • A thorough investigation should be conducted.

All drivers have a legal obligation to exercise due care to avoid hitting bicyclists. If a driver fails to reduce their speed and hits a bicyclist, this could form the basis of a negligence claim. The family of any person that is killed in a bicycle accident may have legal recourse through a wrongful death claim. A bicycle accident attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
