It is extremely important to take safety precautions when riding a bicycle on the road, especially at night. Each year, there are hundreds of fatal bicycle accidents in the United States, and many more thousands of injuries. The worst accidents are usually those that involve a car or automobile.
Take the example of Alejandro Benito. He was riding his bicycle and attempted to cross West Mount Houston, near Big John. According to the Sheriff’s Office, Benito was trying to cross when he did not yield the right of way to a Chevrolet Impala traveling westbound on the same road.
Because it was dark at the time of the crash and the bicycle, reported, had no lights, the resulting accident ended in Benito’s tragic death at the scene of the accident. .
Deputies report that they are investigating the crash.
