On December 9, 2022, one person was hurt in an accident involving an e-bike, according to the police in Cumberland County (North Carolina). It occurred on Church Avenue, along South College Street. The rider of the e-bike suffered severe injuries and had to be taken to a local hospital to receive treatment. However, the person in the vehicle seemed fine.
Overall, the authorities had to close South College Street for a few hours to continue their investigation. Drivers were rerouted. We may never know what happened to the person.
How does this relate to you? If you enjoy riding e-bikes periodically, then you must be aware of the potential injuries you could sustain if you’re in a collision.
After an investigation of pedestrian or cyclist crashes, it’s often found that these people have more injuries than those in a vehicle. The incident above indicates that a motorcycle or e-bike crash can be detrimental!
A crash can happen anywhere, including in California. In fact, a woman in San Diego is now on life support from an electric bike incident, and James Gordon was actually hit and killed by an e-bike.
If you’re injured in an e-bike crash, it’s best to document the event immediately. Find pedestrians nearby who may have seen things happening at the time. Get permission from them to bring up their names in an investigation, either from the police department or your lawyer.
In the state of California, electric bikes are seen as dangerous, though people still have the right to use them. You must be responsible, but that doesn’t always mean you won’t crash into someone or have another party injure you.
