Fatal Bicycle Accident in Harvey
Bicycles serve as fun modes of transportation during the spring and summer months, but, due to the vulnerability of the riders, accidents are more likely to occur. According to reports, from 2012 to 2014, Louisiana boasted the second-highest rate of bicycle-related fatalities per capita in the United States, a trend that has continued into the past couple of years. Deaths have increased from 11 in 2010 to 23 in 2012. The only state to outpace Louisiana is Florida.
