Newton, MA (August 29, 2023) – A bicyclist was left injured as a result of a truck accident that took place in Newton on Monday, August 28.
Just before 5:25 p.m., the Newton Police Department was dispatched to a major crash that occurred on Bridge Street.
Reports show that a bicyclist was riding in the area of Bridge Street and Watertown Street during the early evening hours when they were struck by a UPS truck.
The cyclist was injured due to the crash. Emergency medical services transported the victim to a local hospital for emergency treatment.
The Newton Police Department is currently investigating.
We hope the bicyclist recovers quickly.
Pedestrian and bicycle crashes are the cause of thousands of deaths each year in the United States. Tens of thousands more are left with serious injuries that impact their lives forever. Unfortunately, countless accidents are reported right here in Massachusetts.
Being involved in a bicycle crash can have an overwhelming impact on your life. Unfortunately, bicyclists are at an increased risk of suffering severe injuries during collisions. This is due to the fact that they tend to have very little protection during accidents. Unlike people traveling inside cars, bicyclists are completely exposed to the force of impact during an accident.
Due to a lack of protection, it is no surprise that bicyclists are often left with traumatic brain injuries, severe spinal cord fractures, and other broken bones that impact their lives forever. Many bicyclists are left permanently disabled as a result of their accidents.
The outcome of a pedestrian or bicycle crash can be particularly devastating. Trying to overcome physical and emotional injuries can be draining. Having to go through long-term treatment for injuries can be financially devastating as well.
After a crash, you may be able to recover financial compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit. A knowledgeable pedestrian accident lawyer can help you seek compensation for your medical costs, long-term care expenses, lost wages, and more.
