Young boy struck by a vehicle while riding bicycle

Cities across New Jersey are constantly bustling and congested with traffic. To avoid congested streets, many people choose to travel by foot or by bike. Kids and adults alike commonly use bicycles for recreation and also as a way to get around town. Recently, a young boy in Garfield was struck by a vehicle while riding his bike.

Family members say the boy was riding his bike along Lanza Avenue in Garfield during a recent afternoon. According to reports, a box truck was traveling east on Lanza Avenue and attempted to make a right turn onto Pleasant Avenue. Reports indicate that the boy was riding east on the sidewalk and was struck by the box truck as he entered the intersection.

Tragically, the boy was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said. The driver of the box truck stayed on the scene and cooperated with police. Apparently, the 12 year-old boy and his family had recently moved to Garfield from Albania and were just getting settled into their new home. Family members say they are devastated and heartbroken over the loss of the young boy.

Although its not clear why the driver of the truck struck the boy, it is possible that the driver could have been distracted. Drivers these days face an abundance of distractions that can take focus off of the road, which only leads to accidents. When pedestrians are struck by a vehicle, the consequences are often fatal. Families in New Jersey that have suffered the loss of a loved one in this type of accident should consider discussions with an experienced attorney. A successful lawsuit could provide financial relief to help families during this difficult time
