Deadly Bicycle Accidents in Illinois

Aurora, IL - Cyclist Killed in Hit-&-Run at Montgomery Rd & White Eagle Dr

Cyclists are much more vulnerable to suffering from life-threatening injuries in the event of a crash. For this reason, bicycle accidents are over-represented in national roadway fatalities. Despite the rate of bicycle collisions declining, bicycle fatalities are on the rise. There were 720 people killed in bicycle accidents in the United States in 2014. That year, 27 of those deaths took place in Illinois. 

Family members are often left reeling after a loved one’s life is tragically cut short due to the negligence of another, and recovering can be a difficult battle for surviving family members who are left to pick up the pieces.
