A cyclist, who was killed when he was struck by a vehicle on I-35 in Round Rock was identified by officials as Joseph Holan, 44, a resident of Georgetown, Texas.

Accidents involving pedestrians and cyclists can be particularly problematic and often fatal because of the lack of protection riders, runners and walkers have in contrast with much bigger vehicles. Injuries, often life threatening, often occur upon impact as well as from ejection from a bike and even the impact from the victim hitting the ground, surface or nearby vehicles, signs and items.
While injuries cannot be erased and loved ones cannot be brought back, holding drivers responsible for their negligence while seeking compensation can help families and loved ones answer important questions and reveal details associated with a cycling accident while helping them continue to provide for one another and pay for costly medical treatment resulting.
