Rancho Santa Margarita Truck Accident, Bicyclist in Critical Condition

A truck accident in Ranch Santa Margarita left a bicyclist in critical condition Wednesday morning. Orange County Sheriff’s Department reported that the truck struck the man Tuesday. The investigation is ongoing. Early reports show that the truck driver may not have been at fault in the truck accident.

Officials said the 34-year-old, who was unnamed by authorities, was riding a bicycle westbound on Santa Margarita Parkway about 200 feet east of Alma Aldea when he was struck by the motor vehicle at approximately 3:30 p.m. The bicycle rider was on the center divider, crossed over into eastbound lanes and was hit by a pickup truck. He was ejected from the bicycle and hurt.

Emergency medical respondents were rushed to the scene and transported the injured rider to Mission Hospital with severe head injuries.

Investigators closed down Santa Margarita Parkway at Alma Aldea until 7:30 p.m. to perform an investigation and report the accident.

Because the investigation is ongoing, the Sheriff’s Department is not releasing the names of the bicycle rider or the driver of the pickup. Preliminary reports indicate the driver of the pickup did nothing illegal.

Motor vehicle collisions can happen at any time and when they do happen, those involved are rarely prepared to deal with the issues that surround a crash.  We have seen that most victims lack the experience to deal with an insurance company on their own to get the fullest compensation possible and are often left exploited while the insurance company gets claims more revenue.

Insurance companies are trained to pay out as little as possible and if you were not at fault they tend to make you believe that you were responsible for the damages. This is costly and may result in you having to deal with the motorcycle accident the rest of your life.
