Authorities were notified of the collision which occurred at precisely 7:39 a.m.

According to officials, the driver of a 2006 station wagon only being identified as a 22-year-old Washington man was in the process of making a right turn before hitting a pedalcyclist identified as Roger Sellards.

Sellards suffered major injuries as a result of the collision and was rushed to a hospital for immediate medical attention.

Meanwhile, the station wagon driver was uninjured.

Collision Investigation

In most instances, pedestrians possess the right-of-way when crossing an intersection or a street regardless if they are in a marked crosswalk. It is always a driver’s duty to yield to any pedestrian or bicyclist, however, pedestrians must take extra caution and never assume that a motorist will stop. Authorities will continue to look further into this incident as it is likely that at least some liability will be assigned to the driver.

Considering that liability will be assigned to the driver, Roger Sellards will have the right to pursue a personal injury claim if he wishes to file a lawsuit. Injured accident victims are entitled to compensation for medical expenses and hospital bills, as well as, pain and suffering.

No additional details have been released at this time.
