A cyclist, 62, was killed in Richmond, Virginia when a box truck struck him on Mechanicsville Turnpike, near the Interstate 64 ramp in Richmond, Virginia.
The injured man died at the scene. The driver of the truck was unhurt. No charges have yet been filed against the driver, according to WTVR.
Law enforcement still needs to interview witnesses before possible charges are filed.
The Virginia Injury Lawyer’s Perspective:
Our hearts go out to the family of the unfortunate victim of this tragic accident. The family should get in touch with a Virginia personal injury lawyer as soon as they can. Although charges have not yet been filed in this case, they could be in the future. Your family could be entitled to financial restitution from the driver of the truck. Note that just because the driver may face criminal charges does not preclude the families from seeking restitution through a civil claim.
