Fresno, CA (February 11, 2021) – A man who endured serious head injuries when a vehicle collided with his bicycle in central Fresno on Monday, February 8th passed away in the hospital a short while later.
A report from the California Highway Patrol officers states that at about 2:30 p.m., a bicyclist heading eastbound on North Cedar Avenue in the area of East Brentwood Avenue was struck by a southbound Toyota Camry.
The bicycle collided with the front of the vehicle, throwing the rider up onto its hood. The victim, who has since been identified as 55-year-old Aaron Rivera, a resident of Fresno sustained extremely severe head injuries.
He was transported via ambulance to a nearby trauma center where he later succumbed to his injuries.

Fatal Bicycle Accidents in Fresno
Car crashes are one of the most disastrous events a person can experience. Not only is their day entirely disrupted, but they are frequently left with severe injuries that require extensive hospitalizations and costly medical treatments.
In California, over 150,000 victims are hospitalized every year due to injuries they sustained in collision-related incidents. The majority of these victims need a trip to the emergency room or are admitted to the hospital for medical treatment. Being forced to undergo emergency surgery and remain in the hospital for days or even weeks is a traumatic experience all on its own. Most crash victims are scared, confused, and not sure of how to begin moving forward after their serious injury accident.
When victims are injured in accidents as a result of the negligence of other motorists sharing the road, it is crucial that they reach out to a car accident attorney in California as soon as possible.
