January 1, 2019

Myrtle Beach News

A fatal Myrtle Beach cycling accident claimed the life of one person and left another injured early Tuesday morning, January 1, 2019.

According to  WBTV.com, the cyclists were hit by an SUV on Highway 501 “near Conbraco Circle,” around 3:40 a.m. Tragically, one succumbed to fatal injuries. The surviving victim was transported to Conway Medical Center with injuries.

Another cyclist was struck and injured by a vehicle on “Highway 501…by Conbraco Circle” in September 2015, per WMBF reports. The incidents raise questions over street lighting and bicycle and pedestrian safety measures in the area.

Our Legal Take

As the details of this tragedy continue to develop, and if the driver is found to be at fault, the victim’s family may elect to file civil claims for their loss. Additionally, the surviving victim may also pursue claims for any injuries suffered.

Based upon its experience and success handling cycling accident cases, The Murray Law Firm suggests that the victim’s family should retain an experienced personal injury firm to protect their interests and ensure an unbiased investigation. Photographs of the vehicle and roadways involved and a review of traffic surveillance footage will need to be performed immediately before any evidence is damaged or destroyed.
