Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and loved ones of the victim killed in this traffic wreck.
Failure to yield the right of way is a common problem leading to preventable auto, motorcycle, bicycle and pedestrian accidents in Travis County.
In circumstances where pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists are involved, the riders, walkers and joggers are often at a disadvantage merely based on comparative size and lacking protection. As a result, collisions involving vehicles can make riders and pedestrians vulnerable to serious, life-threatening injuries.
