When a moving vehicle collides with a bicycle, it often results in serious or painful injuries. People on bikes are completely vulnerable to the force, size and weight of any type of vehicle, even when wearing helmets and other types of protective gear. A recent motor vehicle collision with a Delaware cyclist illustrates how dangerous these car accidents can be.
It's a scenario nearly as old as the automobile itself: A fender-bender occurs and the drivers of the vehicles step out to take a look at the damage. It appears that everyone is physically okay, so the conversation quickly turns to the condition of the vehicles involved in the mishap.
