Vienna, MI (November 25, 2021) – On Monday, November 22nd, a deputy on patrol in Vienna Township noticed a male bicyclist wearing dark clothing riding northbound on North Saginaw Road, in the area of Dodge Road, at about 11:20 p.m.
The deputy, who was worried the cyclist would get hit by a car, approached and offered to follow the man to his destination; an invitation he readily accepted.
As the deputy followed the rider, his cruiser was hit from behind by a Chevy Equinox traveling at an excessive rate of speed.
The deputy, the 32-year-old male driver of the Equinox, and his female passenger were all transported to a nearby hospital.
The bicyclist was unharmed during the incident. The deputy’s presence undoubtedly kept him from being run over as the cruiser sustained heavy damage.
The incident remains under investigation with police suspecting the driver was under the influence.
Charges are expected to be filed once the investigation is complete.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Michigan
After being injured in a car accident, it is important to have your attorney start their investigation as quickly as possible. This is because witnesses need to be interviewed, pictures need to be taken of the crash scene as well as the vehicle, and other evidence needs to be gathered.
The more time passes, the harder it is to track down witnesses that will help your case, and evidence, such as surveillance videos from nearby stores, could be deleted.
Your insurance carrier could, and most likely is, undervaluing your no-fault benefits without your knowledge. There are very strict deadlines for filing personal injury and insurance claims.
If you miss one of these deadlines, your case will be thrown out and you will not be given the opportunity to re-file, meaning you will be unable to collect compensation for your damages.
