Fatal Bicycle Accidents in California
Bicycle crashes do not happen nearly as often as other types of accidents. However, that does not mean that they are less deadly or dangerous. In fact, the opposite is usually true. In 2021, there were 1,813 bicycle crashes reported in Los Angeles County. A total of 27 people lost their lives in the accidents. In addition, hundreds more were hurt. Many bicycle accidents result in serious or fatal injuries as riders have little or no protection from the impact of the collision.
