Bicyclist is Killed by Driver in Houston, Texas

by | Oct 1, 2023 | Auto Accident, Wrongful Death

Tragedy struck on Friday, September 29, 2023, when a 14-year-old bicyclist was fatally injured as he rode through a crosswalk on his way to Cinco Ranch High School, where he was a student. According to the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office, the driver of the car involved in the accident, 20-year-old Devin Delvalle, stayed on the scene and was cooperative with police.

This is the second fatal accident of pedestrians by drivers in the local area within a week. On September 25, 2023, another local pedestrian in Sugar Land was struck by a driver that failed to yield while the pedestrian was using the crosswalk. In this case, the pedestrian was declared dead at the scene.

All motorists have a responsibility to operate their vehicles safely and to avoid accidents. However, accidents involving pedestrians and motorists are quite common. In a city as large as Houston, they happen nearly every day.

If you are involved in motor vehicle accident, as a pedestrian or another motorist, it is important to seek legal counsel immediately.
