Man Killed in Oak Park Bicycle Accident Identified

The bicyclist killed yesterday in Oak Park has been identified by the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office.

The victim was identified as 38-year-old Juan Carlos Navarro.

According to reports from the San Diego Police, Navarro tried to pass on the right side of a dump truck in an intersection crosswalk in 54th Street.

He was struck by the dump truck and responding paramedics failed to revive him.

Navarro’s family can consider filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the driver and also the city.

As the employer of the dump truck driver, the city can be held liable for his actions as well.

However, the family has to prove that the bicycle accident was not his fault but was caused by the negligence of the driver.

They should really consider getting the services of an expert car accident attorney for assistance.
