Travelers using roadways around the world include bicyclists and pedestrians, even though they only make up a fraction of this group. Since they lack a lot of the protection that other motorists have, it is especially important for them and others to take extra precautions. A recent truck accident in Louisiana emphasizes this need for caution.
A 30-year-old man was riding his bicycle along the roadway early one morning. At the same time, a pickup truck came up behind the bicycle. The truck struck the back end of the bicycle, according to reports. The man on the bike was killed from the impact of the collision.
