Bicyclist Killed in Rumpke Truck Accident at Intersection Ohio 4 in Butler County, Hamilton, Ohio

Hamilton, Ohio – A bicyclist was killed in an accident involving a Rumpke truck on Friday.

The incident took place shortly after 6 a.m. at the intersection of Ohio 4 and Bishop Avenue.

No other details have been provided.

Thoughts on Bicyclist and Semi-truck Accidents

While we do not have enough information to draw any conclusions regarding this accident, one thing is for sure — pedal-cyclist deaths are on the rise. In 2021, 966 pedal cyclists were killed in traffic crashes compared to 738 in 2017 (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration).

Commercial trucks are responsible for being vigilant on the roadways for smaller vehicles and bicyclists. This means no distractions, speeding past the limit, and obeying all road signs in traffic. If the trucker failed to do this, they should be held accountable for this incident.

May all the facts concerning this accident continue to come out so the family of the victim can receive the answers they are entitled to.
