Man Killed in Madera Bicycle Accident on Road 26 and Ellis Street

Madera, California (March 17, 2020) – A bicyclist died after being hit by two vehicles in Madera early Monday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The deadly accident occurred at around 5:32 a.m. Monday, March 16 on Road 26 and Ellis Street.

Authorities said a 70-year-old Madera man was riding his bicycle across Road 26 when he was struck by a 2006 GMC driven by Nicanor Carlos Garcia, 37, of Chowchilla.

The force of the impact threw the cyclist from his bike and landed in the No. 1 lane of southbound Road 26, where he was also hit by a 1999 Toyota Camry driven by Jaime Rodriguez, 53, of Madera.

The bicyclist was declared deceased at the scene. His body was transported to the Madera County Coroner’s Office.

Garcia and Rodriguez both stopped at the scene and cooperated with investigators. Alcohol or drugs were not considered a factor in the crash.

An investigation into the crash is underway. Anyone with information regarding the accident is asked to contact the Madera area CHP office at 559-675-1025.

“Far too many bicycle collisions are caused by the carelessness or recklessness of other motorists. Sadly, when this occurs, motorcyclists are the ones who tend to suffer the vast majority of injuries”, according to Arin Khodaverdian, Managing Partner and CEO Alpine Law Group. Under California’s rule of comparative negligence, a victim may be able to collect compensation for injuries and other damages even if you were partly at fault for the accident.
